    Basically I'm wondering if there are other options out there other than loans and the armed services, i.e. scholarships. Does anyone know of a way to search for scholarships or any particular scholarships that are available?

    Would this be useful as a new thread??????

    Thanks!!!!

    Many medical schools have their own institutional scholarships which you will apply for once accepted. The other major national scholarships include the <a href="http://bhpr.hrsa.gov/nhsc/" target="_blank">National Health Service Corps</a> and the scholarships of the <a href="http://www.ihs.gov/JobsCareerDevelop/DHPS/HPRTSC.asp" target="_blank">Indian Health Service</a>. The Public Health Service, National Health Service Corps, and Indian Health Service offer loan repayment programs. The <a href="http://www.aamc.org/students/financing/repayment/start.htm" target="_blank">AAMC</a> lists many other loan repayment programs.

    Depending on the state you live in some states have scholarship programs where they pay (your tuition) $10,000 per year of medical school and then when you finish you just commit to working in an under-served area. Most likely you have to be into primary care(areas of need) or obsterics.
    If you decide not to commit then just pay them back thier money. I don't know what each state calls in but it's called a loan forgiveness program (I think) in my state.
