The CAFP Foundation Board of Trustees has determined that due to the ongoing uncertainty presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on in-person gatherings, the 2021 Summit will not take place this year. Instead, we will continue to host webinars that provide content and resources for medical students and family medicine residents. 
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.
