Behind the Curtain of Medical School Debt

by Lucy J. Cairns, MD, and T.J. Huckleberry, MPA

The debt incurred by students in the process of completing medical school in the U.S. has certainly ballooned to levels likely to give aspiring medical students (and their parents!) pause. But the implications for current and future students are not entirely clear, since physicians are a relatively highly compensated group. In this feature we will examine the question of whether we should be concerned about the rising debt burden of the average medical student. What are the consequences for the individual students? What are the implications for the wider community?

As a starting point, we reached out to some recent medical school graduates – resident physicians in training at our local health systems. The following are answers we received to a questionnaire we created to ask for some insight. Keep in mind that these physicians have all chosen a career in a primary care specialty.
