The medical school at NYU, a private university, is ranked third in the U.S., and tied with Stanford University in Stanford, California, according to U.S. News & World Report. That's a major deterrent for qualified premedical students considering a medical degree.

"This decision recognizes a moral imperative that must be addressed, as institutions place an increasing debt burden on young people who aspire to become physicians", Dr. Robert Grossman, dean of NYU's school of medicine, said in a statement.

Why this step? The university points to the overwhelming debt students accrue, which drives them to choose highly paid specialties over those in need of more graduates like family practice, pediatrics, and research.
NYU said on Thursday that it hopes other institutions will follow in its path, as it pursues "a full retrofitting of the pipeline that trains and finances" future doctors.
This historic initiative was made possible by more than 2,500 supporters, including trustees, alumni, and friends. "That's too late if we wish to expand the pipeline to bring forth the broadest, most-talented group of students, and to give them the financial freedom to choose medicine over other careers".
