What I Wish I Had Known as a Young Physician

Chad Spain, MD, FAAFP

In this 30-minute presentation, Dr. Spain provides valuable advice and insight for medical students, residents, and physicians just beginning their careers. While watching this video is not required to receive access to the financial planning program or an employment contract review, we still highly recommend watching it!

Money Matters for Students & Residents

Sara Walker, MD, MS

When Dr. Walker was a fourth-year medical student, she realized that she didn't know very much about personal finance. She started devouring as much content as possible through books, blogs, and online courses. Wanting to share that hard-earned knowledge in a straightforward, immediately applicable format that is specifically geared towards the needs of residents and medical students, she developed a course during her residency.

She has won national and regional awards for her efforts and is looking forward to achieving her next goal - helping YOU reach your (financial) dreams!
