Survey Shows Debt Doesn’t Dictate Medical Students’ Specialty Choices||
A new survey from the AACOM finds fourth-year osteopathic medical students are more likely to choose their specialty based on intellectual content rather than their level of student debt.
“Debt level,” “prestige/income potential” and “opportunity for research/creativity” were the lowest three factors in choosing a specialty.
The survey found that 86% of osteopathic medical students are leaving medical school in debt. The average student will graduate with $240,331 in loans, up 4.5% from last year, due in part from a 51% decrease in students who received subsidized Stafford loans.
