Avoid Student Loans with Tuition Waivers and an Annual Stipend

To encourage the education of physician-scientists, the state of Georgia waives tuition for MD/PhD students for the duration of the program so they can fully focus on their studies.

MD/PhD students also receive an annual stipend of $25,500 and optional student heath insurance. An additional $1,000 is available for traveling and presenting original abstracts during graduate studies. What's more, the cost of living in Georgia is considerably less than in many other states.

While the program covers most academic expenses, students are responsible for any University fees each semester.
