Physician Loans

SunTrust understands the unique financial needs of doctors (MD, DO, DPM) and dentists (DDS, DMD). Whether you're still finishing your residency or you're a partner in a fast-growing medical practice, our physician loans provide flexible financing options to help you manage your expenses. With the wide range of physician loans and lines of credit we offer, you can cover living or relocation costs or consolidate existing credit card debt.

Our physician loans feature:

  • Fixed or variable-rate pricing
  • Generous repayment terms
  • Interest-only payment options1
  • Loan amounts from $5,000 to $100,000, depending on your level of training or the number of years in practice2
  • No application or origination fees, no prepayment penalties, no credit life insurance requirements and no hidden charges3

We also offer unsecured physician loans designed to meet the special credit needs of doctors still in training (in residency or a fellowship program) and those just starting to practice.

It's easy to get started

To begin, you'll need the following information:

  • Your sources of income
  • Information on your financial obligations, including balances and payment amounts
  • Asset information such as deposit accounts, 401(k) or brokerage accounts
  • Information from your co-borrower, if applicable

When you're ready, apply online or call us at 800.241.6905.
