Loan Repayment: How to Manage Your Student Loans Wisely
Student loans are the consequence of investing in a medical education. Unfortunately, loan advisors and financial advisors do not provide much information throughout medical school and residency. This session strives to provide an introduction into what you need to know about your student loans. This session also highlights some of the approaches you must have towards your loans in order to ensure that you will eventually be able to manage your loans wisely. The intent of this session is also to allow for discussion and interaction.
