Does anyone know how I can claim to be poor so the government pays for my medical school?

Is there a way to qualify for being poor so the government pays for medical school?

Nope. Sorry. You could join military medicine. They pay for it then.

I'm sure the government would love to pay for your medical school - as long as you join the army, navy or air force. You could also apply for the National Health Service Corps scholarship, but you have to want to go into a primary care field.

Not really, but you can take out copious amounts of LOANS that you'll have to pay back once you're a successful doc.

Do an MD/PhD...easiest way to not sign your life away to govt and still get med school paid for...just kidding don't try this approach unless you know what you are getting into...also if you are smart stuff like the Jack Cooke Kent scholarships are out there that provide a full ride and living stipend...two options...albeit difficult options to attain
