Are you an aspiring doctor? The road to M.D. is a long and challenging one, but for those who are intent on becoming a doctor, the journey will be worth it. The medical and healthcare field has proven to be one of the most in-demand industries, especially now that we're in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

But just how much will it cost you to pursue your dream profession? Becoming a doctor isn't easy, even budget-wise. Tuition fees at select schools can reach as many as six digits per semester, and that still doesn't include the four or so years of your undergraduate pre-med course. But it still depends on which med school you wish to apply for (there are also scholarship programs in most schools, which you can apply for if you meet the requirements).

To give you an idea, here are the approximate costs of tuition fee in these medicine schools in recent years:
