At NYU Long Island School of Medicine, our goal is to assist students in making smart financial decisions, so they graduate with minimal debt and maximum financial awareness. In addition to the individual counseling and educational programming that is typically offered to students while in medical school, we’ve compiled additional financial education resources that we think can help students with their decisions.
Financial Information, Resources, Services, and Tools
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has created the financial literacy program Financial Information, Resources, Services, and Tools, also called FIRST. Some features of FIRST include videos and webinars on topics such as how to pay for medical school, the cost of residency interviews, and selecting a loan repayment program, as well as a useful student loan calculator.

Other Financial Resources for Medical Students
We recommend several other resources to help you manage your finances during medical school, including a cost of living calculator, online courses on personal finance and investing for medical professionals, and tools to monitor your credit score.
