Loan Types, Terms, Conditions & Choices

There are several loan options that borrowers have to finance their medical education. In most cases, students applying for just federal student aid are awarded up to their cost of attendance in Federal Direct Unsubsidized and Graduate PLUS Loan funds. However, students should always remember to borrow only what you need and nothing more.
