Medical student's financial dilemma : a study conducted at the University of Cape Town.
The financial position of 5th- and 6th-year medical students at the University of Cape Town was analysed.
The median annual expenditure for a 6th-year student in private accommodation is R13790.
The trend in applicants to medical school has changed, with proportionally more now coming from educationally and economically disadvantaged back-grounds.
The accumulated debt of 74 5th-year students and 76 6th-year students, who completed a questionnaire, amounts to R2 757 415 of which R1 596 670 must be repaid as cash and the balance as bursary commitments.
