Cleveland Clinic to pay tuition for medical school students

Cleveland Plain Dealer, May 15, 2008

The 32 students entering the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University will have their tuition covered by the Clinic. The program will be funded by Cleveland Clinic's endowment and hospital operations. The aim is to free students from the feeling that they have to choose high-paying specialties to pay off medical school debt, rather than going into academic and research oriented medicine, according to Clinic representatives. Other medical schools have already greatly reduced their tuition costs, freeing up students who may want to practice in fields that are lower-paying but greatly needed.
