When you think about paying for medical school, doesn’t going for free sound quite appealing? One of the least well-known ways to pay for medical school is a semi-secret, and it’s probably the method you’ve been looking for.
The program is called the National Health Service Corps. The National Health Services Corps is the civilian version of the Health Professions Scholarship Program, meaning, you can go to medical school and then after you complete your medical school, you commit for a certain number of years — usually one year for every year of repayment — to work in an area of the country where medical services are under offered — where there is a greater need for doctors to provide services.
If you have seen the ‘90s TV show called Northern Exposure, you know exactly what I’m talking about. In the show the doctor, Joel Fleischman, had committed to work in the fictional town of Cicely, Alaska, in exchange for his medical training to be paid for by in this case, the Alaskan community where he’s committed. What he didn’t realize was that the remote area would be too remote for his liking and the rest is the stuff of television sitcoms.
Back to reality. You will discover that the National Health Service Corps is an amazing opportunity, a great program, and is well worth your time to consider.
