We work with the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine to provide a financial wellness curriculum for students enrolled in the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine (CCLCM) and students in the University Program. Money Matters is the School of Medicine’s financial wellness curriculum for medical students. Resources and sessions will be provided to help you build skills surrounding financial wellness that will benefit you beyond medical school.

M1 students receive information focused on Budgeting and Financial Stressors. Students receiving federal student loans will have a one-on-one session with a Money Mentor to review their budget for the year and planning for the years ahead.

M2 students receive information about Credit in all its forms (credit reports, credit scores, and credit cards), as well as Identity Theft and Financial Goal Setting.

M3 and M4 students receive information about Cost of Applying for Residency and Interviews, so they can plan ahead for financing the next big step in their education. Students also receive information on budgeting and credit.

M5 students receive information focused on Loan Repayment Plans and Debt Management. We specifically cover this during your Exit Counseling session in March.

Throughout your time at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, you will receive our Financial Wellness Newsletter, email outreach, and be invited to sessions from industry experts on financial wellbeing and related topics.
