Because of Lisha and my personal journey with personal finance, I know that there are medical professionals out there who want to provide personal finance lectures to others around them or maybe even create a personal finance curriculum if they are in academics. So if you are that resident or doctor interested in creating a personal finance curriculum for doctors or maybe just teaching friends and family about money, today’s episode is for you. Today we are going to be talking about how you can start teaching other doctors and medical professionals about money.

Everyone has heard of a backdoor Roth IRA, but what’s the big deal with Roth IRA’s anyway? Today, Dr. Lisha Taylor and I are going to be talking about Roth IRA money for physicians.

So join us today to learn what a Roth IRA is and why you should seriously consider one as a physician.

How Much Money Should Doctors Save?
One thing we can agree on about today’s topic is this: doctors historically are under-savers.
But when it comes to physician money management, exactly how much doctors should be saving is hotly contested. How much and how you save is going to depend on your own financial goals and your current situation – the status of your student loans, whether you’re married or have kids or plan to start a family when you want to retire, etc.
In this episode, we’ll give you two different options for figuring out how much money you should save – regardless of your situation.
