Office of Student Financial Assistance

Introduction

The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine provides not only financial aid in the form of scholarships and loans for medical students who need financial assistance to pay for medical school, but a wide range of educational debt management services to help students not only borrow responsibly but repay responsibly as well after they graduate and move into their residency programs. The Miller School of Medicine is committed to ensuring that all students who borrow at the Miller School of Medicine have access to the finest educational debt management support available, and that they are well versed in proven repayment strategies to help them effectively manage their student loan obligations after they leave the Miller School of Medicine.

Mission

We believe that the high cost of obtaining a medical education should never interfere with one’s dream of becoming a physician. We know that a well-informed and educated borrower can make the intelligent choices needed to limit debt and avoid financial hardship.

It is the mission of the Office of Student Financial Assistance to ensure that all students receive the most advantageous source of funding available to complete their medical education and to provide the necessary resources to effectively manage their student loan obligation in the future.

We strive to be equitable and sensitive, to offer professional and courteous service, and to facilitate the process for timely delivery of aid. We also sponsor group sessions on debt management. Please feel free to stop in to our office any time with your questions!
