Medical School and Beyond!

Free Money

on January 31, 2017

One thing is no secret…medical care is not cheap and neither is the cost to become a physician.  In fact, the average medical student graduates with loans equal to a mortgage.  Unfortunately, the rigors of medical school makes it almost impossible for the majority of students to have a job therefore all their living costs are covered by loans.

As such as a medical student it is advantageous to find ways to be very frugal with money.

Study Material Discounts:

  1. Becker’s Free Webinars:  These webinars are live online lectures offered each month that are free for all medical students and cover topics including USMLE Step 1, USMLE Step 2, and residency applications and interviews.  All you have to do is register and you will get a link to join the webinar.  The website is updated each month with that particular month’s free webinar’s.
  2. Also AMSA members get a discount on Becker’s review courses.  I will be using this course of Step 2 CK prep.
