42 CFR 60.10 - How much can be borrowed?
(a) Student borrower. An eligible student may borrow an amount to be used solely for expenses, as described in § 60.5(g), incurred or to be incurred over a period of up to an academic year and disbursed in accordance with § 60.33(f). The maximum amount he or she may receive for that period shall be determined by the school in accordance with § 60.51(f) within the following limitations:
(1) A student enrolled in a school of medicine, osteopathic medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry or podiatric medicine may borrow up to $80,000 under this part. The amount received may not exceed $20,000 in any academic year.
(2) A student enrolled in a school of public health, pharmacy, chiropractic, or a graduate program in health administration, clinical psychology, or allied health may borrow up to $50,000 under this part. The amount received may not exceed $12,500 per academic year.
(3) For purposes of this paragraph, an academic year means the traditional approximately 9-month September-to-June annual session. For the purpose of computing academic year equivalents for students who, during a 12-month period, attend for a longer period than the traditional academic year, the academic year will be considered to be 9 months in length.
(4) The student's estimated cost of attendance shall not exceed the estimated cost of attendance of all students in like circumstances pursuing a similar curriculum at that school.

(2) An eligible nonstudent in the field of medicine, ostepathic medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry, or podiatric medicine may borrow up to $80,000 under this part including loans obtained while the borrower was a student. The loan amount may not exceed $20,000 in any 12-month period.
(3) An eligible nonstudent in the field of pharmacy, public health, chiropractic, health administration, or clinical psychology may borrow up to $50,000 under this part including loans obtained while the borrower was a student. The loan amount received under this part may not exceed $12,500 in any 12-month period.
