Doctors’ & PA’s Student Loans
As a Doctor or Physician Assistant, you have worked hard to get where you are today! You have completed an undergraduate degree and have competed successfully to get into Medical School or a Physician Assistant School and worked very hard to come out the other end as a Doctor or Physician Assistant! And now that you have graduated, you have found out that it is not all roses and that you are now saddled with a big problem: STUDENT LOAN DEBT!
Only 15% of higher education students are in GRADUATE programs yet they account for 40% of federal student loans issued each year! i.e. $37,000,000,000 per year1
The average Medical School debt, that includes undergraduate degree is $201,4902
The average Physician Assistant debt is $100,0003
90% of borrowers graduating with six-figure student loan debt are graduate students NOT undergraduate students.4
Here are some questions to ask yourself…
- Are your Federal student loans larger than your income?
- Do you feel overwhelmed by your monthly student loan payments?
- Do you know if you are in the right repayment plan?
- Do you feel that you can’t move forward with your life because of the amount of student debt hanging over you?
- Are your plans for a home and family on hold because of student loan debt?
- Do you feel that you will NEVER be able to pay your student loans off?
- Do you feel panicked / frustrated that here is no solution to your student loan problem?
Then you have come to the right place!
We can assess what is the right plan for you based on your current situation and what your Short, Medium and Long Term goals are. We can usually show you ways to significantly reduce your monthly repayment amount and maximize the amount of debt forgiveness you can achieve.
