Medical Student Loans: A Comprehensive Guide is exactly what it sounds like, and I wrote it from the ground up specifically to help doctors: to concisely cover a complex topic and give you (the premed, medical student, resident, or attending physician) the tools and background you need to handle the big investment you’ve made in yourself.
- Borrowing less and minimizing interest accrual during school
- How Federal Loans Work & Federal Repayment Options
- Income-driven repayment (IBR, PAYE, REPAYE, and ICR)
- Federal “Direct” Consolidation
- Forbearance & Deferment
- Public Service Loan Forgiveness
- Maximizing PSLF
- Long-Term (IDR) Loan Forgiveness & Loan Repayment Programs (LRP)
- Private Refinancing
- Taxes & Retirement
This topic is so important but so poorly covered during medical school and out in the ether of the internet.
Shockingly, this is basically the only complete up-to-date book-length treatment of student loans currently available anywhere, and it’s doubly unique as the only one written specifically for doctors by a fellow doctor.
