Big debts for medical students

1st July 2009

The British Medical Association has warned that medical students are finishing their five-year courses with crippling levels of debt.

It polled more than 2,000 students in England and Northern Ireland – where tuition fees apply - and found those now starting their studies face debts at graduation of nearly £40,000. The BMA said a career in medicine was in danger of becoming a viable option only for the wealthy, though the government maintained support was available for students from the poorest backgrounds.
