Career Options in the medical field

Increasing career options

Maybe it’s always been your dream to be a doctor – or maybe it’s always been your parents’ dream that you be a doctor. Either way, the costs and dedication required to earn your MD means this career is not for everyone.

For the 2010-2011 school year, first-year tuition fees at Harvard Medical School were $45, 050; by the time you add in additional school fees and living expenses, Harvard’s website estimates a total cost of $70, 000 for the first year alone. And that’s before any travel costs if you don’t happen to live in the northeastern United States. According to a New England Journal of Medicine article from September 2009, 25% of medical school graduates have debt exceeding $200, 000 – and that’s not including the cost of their undergraduate degree.
