The Sunday Best (4/17/2016)
The Sunday Best is a collection of a handful of posts I share with you, the reader, each week. With so many informative and inspirational writers out there, I have no trouble coming up with 5 worthwhile reads each week.
Most posts will be from recent weeks, written by physicians, and related to personal finance, but expect to find a post or two that are lacking at least some of these elements.
Presenting, in no particular order, this week’s Sunday Best:
Peter Ubel, MD discusses ways to cut down on unnecessary testing in Reducing health costs: Patients aren’t going to take the lead @KevinMD. I like the fact that there is a “choosing wisely” campaign and Top 5 lists as part of these efforts.
SmartMoneyMD asks How Much Net Worth Should Doctors Have? He shows how an intensivist could be a millionaire by age 40. The assumptions of $30,000 to $60,000 in annual spending are quite low to achieve this, but could be doable for a single doc in a low cost of living area.
As if we didn’t already have enough Top 37 lists out there 😉 Dr. J @ medschoolfinancial gives us yet another insightful one in 37 Things That Separate Financially Secure Individuals From The Pack.
Have a great week!
