Just in time for the end of final exams comes this sobering article in the New York Times announcing that 25% of US medical students graduate at least $200,000 in debt. The explosion in costs just within the past 10 years is amazing. And people wonder why no one's going into primary care.
The median cost of attending your state medical school is $44,390, and private schools average $62,243 per year. That translates to a whole bunch of shifts in the ER once I return to the Big City after a couple weeks at home.
