Financial wellness is an important aspect of life as it has a direct impact on overall feelings of wellness, resilience, and functioning. Financial wellness tends to be overlooked by many as finances can be confusing and honestly, overwhelming at times, and it may seem easier to ignore financial issues or to fix them in a crisis but these approaches are not the best and can result in difficulties in others areas of your life.
Financially informed students will make good choices about their futures, and will be better able to cope with the complex issues that face them during their time in medical school, upon graduation and beyond.
The Financial Aid Office is a valuable resource for questions regarding general loan repayment, loan consolidation, Public Service Loan Forgiveness, and Income Driven Repayment plans. We are committed to maintaining your financial well-being, both during your medical education and after as you transition into residency and beyond. Students are encouraged to schedule appointments with our knowledgeable staff at any point during their time at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry to discuss their concerns.
