Young Doctors and The Perils of Instant Financial Gratification: Guiding Physicians Entering Practice
July 24, 2015•14 min
Host: John J. Russell, MD Physicians are expected to memorize and maintain an enormous amount of clinical information on a wide variety of topics. But when it comes to financial management, it's this particular population that often comes up the shortest. Perhaps the most at-risk individuals within this community are the young physicians just out of training. For this group, having endured anywhere from 8 to 15 years of low wage training, financial disasters are just a few instant gratification purchases away. Dr. John Russell welcomes James Hemphill, author of PAY YOURSELF FIRST: A Financial Guide for Doctors Entering Practice, Mr. Hemphill is Chief Investment Strategist and Managing Director of TGS Financial Advisors.
