​​​​​​The AOA is excited to announce our new partnership with Doctors Without Quarters (DWOQ). Today's osteopathic graduates finish medical school with roughly $230,000 in student loan debt. Selecting from today's menu of repayment options requires careful planning, and recent and proposed changes in legislation demand that your strategy be updated annually. Many graduates are eligible for $200,000 or more in loan forgiveness by following the proper action plan. Factor in the evolution of the private refinancing lending marketplace, and today's student debt environment for osteopathic medical graduates is more complex than it's ever been.
