NYU offers free tuition for all its medical students:
The New York University school of medicine will offer free tuition for all present and future students, the university announced.
Citing the danger of “overwhelming” debt, it says every student will qualify regardless of merit or financial need.
NYU said financial worries were driving graduates to more lucrative specialties, pushing doctors away from additional general positions.
The scholarship covers annual tuition costs of up to $55,000 (£43,000).
A study produced by the Association of American Medical Colleges estimated that in 2017 75% of medical students graduated in debt.
The average debt level was $190,000 (£149,000).
