Medical school education costs have been raising over the past 50 years at a rate that is unsurpassed in history.
Citing concerns about the “overwhelming financial debt” facing graduates, N.Y.U. School of Medicine recently announced it would cover the tuition of its medical students, regardless of merit or need.
School officials have become increasingly worried that students burdened by steep debt are pursuing top-paying specialties rather than careers in family medicine, pediatrics, and research. N.Y.U.’s decision may spur other top medical schools to follow suit.
For this reason, we asked the M3 Global Research community in the United States and Canada:
"What are your thoughts related to tuition free education? Should medical institutions provide tuition-free education?"
We run the survey amongst 9083 panel members. You can find below what the M3 Global Research community answered to this question.

Free education should be followed up by a requirement to become board certified in Family Medicine, Pediatrics or Research
