What You’ll Learn:

In today’s episode of Money Meets Medicine, “We Are in a Pandemic, Do you Have Your Financial House in Order?,” you’re going to learn…

  • All about why you need an estate plan.
  • How to develop an estate plan.
  • What to do if you want to donate to charity.

Quotes To Remember 

“Estate planning is still extremely important, because if you’ve got other things like kids, that’s worth way more than any amount of money you’re ever going to make tenfold.”

“You might want somebody to have guardianship over your children, but you might not want that person to manage your finances. It doesn’t have to be the same person, which is interesting.”

“A will, at its most simple form is just a legal document that states your financial and your medical wishes. It’s going to ensure that that property that you have or personal effects or your medical status, it’s basically all cared for in a matter of your choosing.”

“A trust is an enforceable document that you’re crafting while you’re alive, that can, one, it can help reduce estate taxes, which we talked about is likely not the case, but it could plan for the care of your children.”

MMM 88: Do Doctors Really Need Emergency Funds?

Physician turnover is high, specifically after the first 2-5 years of training. With doctors changing jobs so often, it is important to establish an emergency fund early on (and to consider the cost of leaving a job in medicine).

So today we wanted to dive into why everyone, including us, says you need an emergency fund, where you should put that money, what to use it for, and what NOT to use it for. We are also going to do some real talk on doing the math BEFORE you decide to either change jobs or leave medicine altogether.
