Many physicians complete medical school and graduate medical education (GME) burdened by high debt and financial illiteracy. This places them at increased risk for ill-informed financial decisions, which can result in increased stress and anxiety and a lower quality of life. Furthermore, financial concerns impact physicians’ specialty selections and may partly explain the scarcity of primary care practitioners. In response, medical wellness programmes have increasingly sought to offer personal finance education, but there is little guidance on optimal curricula. Our objective in this article is to systematically review the existing literature examining physician financial literacy curricula and to recommend a standardised personal finance curriculum.

Dr. Yuval Bar-Or's Audible version of Personal Finance Essentials for Doctors: Pillars of Wealth Book 1, is now available (over 8 hours of content).
About the Book
The objective of this book is to provide practical and nuanced advice doctors can use to make better personal financial decisions for themselves and their families. The book aims to provide a balanced discussion that recognizes subtleties and doesn’t resort to reflexive emotional responses. Ultimately, this book is about helping you to level the playing field. You don’t need to become a financial expert. You don’t need to compromise your science or patient focus. All you need to know are the basic facts. These will help you determine whether you can and should make decisions on your own, which questions to ask, and how to evaluate prospective providers of financial services in the event you elect to use their services.
The book covers all major areas of personal finance, including: building net worth, budgeting, debt management (student loans, home mortgages), investing basics, retirement planning, identifying insurance needs (life, disability, auto and home), dealing with financial advisors, and estate planning basics.
The content was prepared for doctors - in collaboration with doctors. The author comes from a medical family and is a financial risk management expert.
The content applies to other highly educated professionals such as dentists, pharmacists, attorneys, engineers, etc.
