Options are limited to either residency clinics at teaching institutions (which still charge a fee) or going through a credit loan via a company like CareCredit.

Your best option is to find a training program where the residents offer discounted fees for training purposes.  Be sure to find out how much supervision is offered, and by whom.

I don't know if this is still true (or if it ever was) but a colleague told me that during plastic surgery residency the residents had a clinic and would call in patients as donor skin was needed in the burn units for temporary dressings. Try calling at the burn center or plastic surgery department at a university hospital near you to find out. Best wishes.
