Posted March 04, 2019 19:30:06 Some parents may be choosing to delay or withdraw from medical school in favor of the next logical step: becoming a teacher.
According to a new survey by the University of Michigan’s School of Education, some students are delaying or withdrawing from medical schools due to cost and time constraints.
The survey, which was published in the American Sociological Review, found that students who are enrolled in medical school have higher costs than students who enroll in college.
The median medical school tuition cost for students enrolled in 2015 was $31,848, while students enrolled this year were expected to be at $34,854.
The median cost for medical school courses was $37,849, which, according to the survey, is higher than the median cost of an undergraduate degree, which is $35,000.
According the survey findings, the median number of hours spent on coursework is also higher for students who decide to delay medical school.
Students who enroll this year are expected to spend more than the average of the medical school graduates who enrolled last year.
While students who choose to delay attending medical school are more likely to be white and lower-income, they are also more likely than students in college to be male.
The majority of the students surveyed were white males, which suggests that those who choose medical school may have difficulty enrolling at a university that is predominately white.
However, those students are more than four times more likely and students in higher-income groups have the highest percentage of students who decided to delay.
This trend is not unique to the United States.
The average number of years of medical education is about 13 years for students in a U.S. medical school or equivalent, according the National Center for Education Statistics.
Students in U.K. medical schools have about 15 years of experience, and students from India have about 18 years of schooling.
According College Board President and CEO Jay D. Zweibel, these are not “unfair” statistics, but they are indicative of how many students are choosing to defer their medical school education.
In the United Kingdom, the average number was just 10 years, while in the U.s., the average was 15 years.
According to the National Institute of Health, about 4.4 million students will graduate from medical programs in the United Sates in 2019, and the majority of those students will enter the workforce.
