Medical Student Reimbursements

Students have the opportunity to purchase their own USMLE study exam prep materials and submit receipts for reimbursement.

This is beneficial in three ways:

  1. Choose when study tools are needed,
  2. Choose which study tools are needed, and
  3. Duke will pay for the study tools.

The following study prep tools are allowable purchases. Please note that only study materials may be submitted for reimbursement. Exam fees or other related expenses are not allowed, though students are encouraged to contact the Office of Financial Aid for further assistance.

  • $450 for SHELF study (360-day Step 2CK QBank)
  • $350 for Step 1 (60-day Step 1 QBank + 2 self-assessment forms)
  • $320 for Step 2 CK (30-day Step 2CK QBank + 2 self-assessment forms)

USMLEWorld QBank is generally the student-preferred study tool for SHELF exams, Step 1, and Step 2CK. However, the below list of other resources outside of USMLEWorld QBank may be used to purchase exam preparation materials.

  • AMBOSS
  • NBME
  • USMLE - Rx
  • Kaplan
  • Sketchy
  • Pathoma
  • Cram Fighter
  • Ryan Medical
  • Boards & Beyond
  • Doctors in Training
  • Amazon

Students are allowed to purchase any of the SHELF, Step 1 and Step 2CK study materials, up to a total of $1,150 per person. This is not an annual limit, but rather the total duration of combined years of medical school.


Reimbursement Process and Guidelines

Note: Receipts older than one year will not be reimbursed per the Duke one-year policy of receipt reimbursement.

  • Gift card reimbursements of any kind are not allowed.
  • Please allow approximately four (4) weeks for processing, noting the processing of requests may be delayed as a result of staffing, volume of pending reimbursements in the ET&R office, etc.
  • Felicia Marchis and Crystal Harris in the Medical Education Administration Office will process the reimbursement and make every effort to ensure funds are received. Students will receive either a live check mailed to the address listed on the fillable form, or direct deposit to the student’s personal checking account (if you are/have been on payroll). Note: Direct deposits are not related to nor do they affect Bursar accounts.
  • For any questions or concerns related to reimbursement status, please email medstudentrequests@dm.duke.edu. Please allow approximately 24 – 48 hours for a response.

  1. Complete the Davison Council Reimbursement Fillable Form
