Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid website at the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine. We commend you on your decision to pursue a career in medicine. The Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to assisting you in obtaining the funds necessary to finance your medical education.
We recognize the complexities associated with managing your finances during this time and the Office of Financial Aid is here for you throughout your medical education and beyond. A considerable portion of medical students will leave medical school with some form of debt. This truth, however, should not deter you from pursuing what you have identified to be your passion or from making your dream a reality. As such, we, financial aid offices, exist to support and guide students in their attempt to identify and secure the most affordable sources of financial assistance. We offer information and counseling on matters related to scholarships, borrowing, financial planning, and debt management and will be pleased to direct you during your journey as a medical student.
Please feel free to browse our website and contact us at any time if you have specific questions.
Best of luck in your pursuits!
Joseph M. Nicolini, MHA
Director of Financial Aid
