We recently wrote an article for Physician’s Money Digest about the four presidential candidates and their views on student loan debt and student loan forgiveness in the United States. Regardless of your political views, it’s a great source to help learn about their positions. Here’s a quick excerpt:
$1.2 trillion – that’s the current running total for student loan debt in the United States. Recent figures show that $3,000 in student loan debt is accrued every second, and the average student loan debt figure for graduating students is around $33,000. And according to the Association of American Medical College, medical school graduates are accruing around $183,000 in debt, on average.With the amount of the country’s student loan debt continuing to grow and the presidential elections just around the corner, it’s important to hear what each of the 2016 presidential candidates have to say about student loans, and what they’re going to do about college tuition and student loan debt, especially for physicians, dentists, and other medical professionals.
