On Rising Medical Student Debt: In for a Penny, in for a Pound.
Kassebaum, Donald G.; And Others
Academic Medicine, v71 n10 p1123-34 Oct 1996
In constant dollars, the average indebtedness of medical students has increased by over 59% between 1985 and 1995, while the proportion bringing debt with them to medical school declined. Public school graduates accrued debt averaging more than their tuition. Private school indebtedness varied. Little effect is seen on time to graduation, racial or gender diversity, or admission rate of older students. (Author/MSE)
