In my case about 15k. That's including test, prep, flights, hotels, and rent during interview season + everything else.
Just remember it is not paid right away! The biggest out of pocket cash is during application, where documents needing to be sent and hospital application are at the same time. It can be anywhere from 2k-4k depending of your list of hospitals and amount you have to spend legalizing, translating and shipping documents.
