Financial Planning for Medical School
UNSOM School Code: 002568
The University of Nevada School of Medicine is one of the best values in medical education. Students who meet residency criteria have the opportunity to receive an excellent medical education while paying a low tuition. However, medical school is still a significant financial investment for students and their families. It is important that you are prepared to take on the responsibility to meet financial obligations while attending and after you graduate medical school. The University of Nevada School of Medicine's Financial Aid department can educate, inform and assist you in financial planning and managing student debt. There are many resources available to you in the form of scholarships, grants and financial planning. You are encouraged to read all the information provided and contact the Assistant Director of UNSOM Financial Aid if you have additional questions.
