Tuition, Debt, and Medicine: The intersection of cost and value for future doctors

According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, over 80% of medical school graduates leave school with debt. The median amount of education debt carried by U.S. medical graduates in 2015 was over $180,000. This is significant but surmountable, given the salary of a physician. However, the bigger Caribbean schools do not leave students with an average amount of academic debt. In fact, they can leave them repaying nearly twice as much. They also force students to deal with high attrition rates, 300+ member starting classes, and a sink-or-swim approach to both basic sciences and clinical rotations. 

The question, then, is this: is the greater cost worth it? Do you truly "get what you pay for" in that environment? Or is there a better option? One that also has a demonstrably better dedication to your future? Financially, culturally, academically, and professionally? 

We think so. And it shows in tuition, outcomes, and ROI.
