What people say

“Dr. Turner is a transparent and engaged facilitator and he puts his heart and soul into this course, which promotes a tremendous amount of buy-in from students!”

“My wife and I will be more prepared to handle the financial stresses that come with buying a house, buying disability and life insurance, applying for jobs, and creating our long term financial goals because of the FLARE program.”

“This information is invaluable and I strongly believe that it would be valuable to all medical students at Wake and around the country.”

“As someone coming from a low SES background into the landscape of medicine, I have often felt 10 steps behind financially compared to peers who come from wealthy families or families already established in medicine. Having the opportunity to ask questions in a low stakes setting, and to discuss topics that don’t otherwise arise in our medical training, has helped me to gain confidence in the “financial literacy” arena and to realize I am “not alone” in either my background or the financial questions I may have!”
