No med school loans?

No loans. Medical school in Costa Rica is very affordable. It's either free if done in the public University of Costa Rica or about $6000 per year if done at our most prestegious private medical school.

And best of all, we start medical school right after high school. I graduatated from medical school at age 22 and went into post-graduate training (in the USA) from age 22 to 25. All of my post-graduate collegues where in their late 20s and early 30s. At age 25, I was debt-free and in private practice as an internal medicine specialist.

I'd like to see my four children go to medical school either here in Costa Rica or in Cuba. France is also opening up an excellent program for Latin Americans that would cover tuition, books, and living expenses. I'm keeping my eye on that.
