    Medical students mainly live off of Stafford and Grad Plus loans. Most medical schools will send students sample budgets giving them an idea of what the cost of living is like in the area so students know how much to borrow to cover tuition and still have enough money to live on for the year.

    win the lottery, take out loans, or sign a deal with the government to serve some tribal people or serve in the military.

      Medical students do not have the time for a job. Classes usually run until the late afternoon and they then need to spend another 5 + hours studying to keep up. Also tuition is often over $50,000 a year which is not reasonable for a part time job even if students had the time to work.

    Most medical students take out massive loans. They graduate more than $100,000 in debt--but because they're in a high-earning career, they can repay it while still maintaining an adequate lifestyle.

    Rent out a small room in a house, with shared common areas. It is much cheaper.
