Although many students dream of attending medical school and pursuing a career in the medical field, the cost of this education can be prohibitive. Many students graduate with a significant debt load. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), 75% of 2017 graduates took out student loans to pay for med school.

U.S. News has released their list of the top 10 private medical schools with the lowest tuition and fees for 2017-2018. Baylor College of Medicine in TX and the Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami in Florida offer discounts to in-state students. Costs shown for theses schools are for out-of-state students.
