MD Program

Welcome to the Office of Student Financial Planning at Wake Forest School of Medicine. Our office is responsible for assisting students in obtaining the resources needed to finance their medical education, as well as serving as an educational resource for financial planning and debt management. We know that deciding how to manage funding for medical school requires careful consideration of your options and we are here to help. 

We encourage all prospective students to begin the financial planning process early, and to assist you in this process, we have included financial aid application requirements and an itemized list that highlights the basics for applying for financial aid at WFSM.

This website will guide you through the process by providing clear instructions and important deadlines that will be of assistance even if you are a first time borrower.  We have also included information about WFSM scholarships and resources that will help you search for external funding opportunities.

To the left, you will find information regarding cost of attendance and the process for applying for financial aid, as well as links that will help with debt management and budgeting. You should begin creating a financial plan as soon as possible, so that you can concentrate on your studies, not your expenses.

Our staff is here for you and happy to assist, so please contact us when you have questions or concerns.
