Repayment Plan Options and Projections

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) has a variety of financial information and resources for medical students.  The COM OSFA strongly recommends that you use the Medloans Organizer and Calculator. It’s a great tool to track your loans now and to project repayment scenarios in the future, both during and after residency.  Watch this video for instructions on how to use the MedLoans Organizer and Calculator (MLOC).
