The SIU School of Medicine (SIUMED) Financial Aid Office (FAO) assists medical students by awarding financial aid to help pay for their medical education. The FAO will assist students with developing their financial aid package and will work to provide students with the financial assistance they need to meet the difference between their educational expenses and their available resources. Most financial need is met by combining various loan programs because scholarships are limited.

The FAO is available to assist students throughout their time as a medical student. Assistance includes questions, debt counseling, and obtaining short term emergency loans.
