With medical school debt and student loans lurking at the back of nearly every student’s, resident’s, or physician’s mind, the affordability (or lack thereof) of medical school can be a huge obstacle. You may not be able to afford your top choice of school, even if you were accepted, without incurring some debt.

Medical school debt can follow you around for many years after you graduate. In many cases, it’s worth it to consider more affordable institutions where you will still receive a top-notch medical training experience. Below is the US News list of the most affordable private medical schools in the country and the annual tuition from the 2015-16 academic year:
