SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) So I have been reading some pretty frightening articles online about medicare reimbursements and the poor pay of doctors in recent years with the changes in health care coming down the pipeline - I have been able to witness first hand working for a private ophthalmology practice who sees primarily medicare patients...My question is, how are doctors coming out of medical school with $300,000 worth of debt (undergrad and medical school combined loans), and being able to make it? Is there some amazing debt management strategy out there? I suppose I'm just worried about going to medical school in the upcoming year hopefully pending an acceptance, an coming out with tons of debt that I presumably will hardly be able to manage with the coming changes to medicine. Anyone have an article to read or something?
