* A suggested breakdown of various living expenses listed above is indicated. This itemization is only a guideline, and students should plan a budget and economize to ensure that their actual expenses do not exceed the total allowable living expense budget.

  New Pathway students purchase their black bag and diagnostic equipment during their first year; HST students purchase equipment during their second year. Therefore, the first year budget for HST students will be $750 less than the figure listed above, and the second year budget will be $750 more.

Students who chose to waive the Harvard Blue Cross/Blue Shield Health Insurance Plan will have this budget item removed from their cost of attendance budget.

The housing allowance for first-year students (Class of 2017) is based on the average cost of a Vanderbilt Hall residence contract. Students with spouses, partners, or dependents may request an off-campus housing allowance from the HMS Financial Aid Office. For returning students, the housing allowance is based on the assumption that students are sharing rental units in the community. See Section 8 for more information about Housing.

The National Board USMLE Step 2 CS (Clinical Skills) Exam fee is included in the third-year student budget. The travel expenses associated with the exam are included in the fourth-year budget.

OPTION:  The federal government permits students to borrow an unsubsidized Ford/Stafford loan to purchase a computer, printer, and software for school. Students interested in this option should speak with a financial aid staff member prior to the purchase. Students are limited to one such purchase during their tenure at HMS. The one-time purchase maximum is $2,500.
