The Sunday Best (5/1/2016)

Happy May Day! Check out the new homepage layout if you get a chance. I’d love to hear what you think.


The Sunday Best is a collection of a handful of posts I share with you 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:


Dr. Amanda Liu, a.k.a. Dr. Wise Money shows us she’s no miser despite her impressive savings rate and debt paydown during residency in Living Richly Today: A More Relatable Dr. Wise Money.


Joe Udo @ contemplates a potential reality in maybe thirty to fifty years for the early retiree in Long-term Care Options for Early Retirees.


In an oldie but goodie, J. Money @ helps us answer the payoff debt versus save & invest question in a sensible way, while expressing his affection for Britney Spears in My Answer to All Financial Debates.


Chief Resident Ahmad Yousaf, MD @ NEJM Journal Watch discusses the Costs of Being a Doctor in a piece that was featured on KevinMD, retitled The absurd cost of becoming a doctor.


A millennial NYC accountant tells us how he really feels in I’m Tired of Hearing How Bad Millennials Have It @ I think a few seasoned docs may be similarly tired of hearing how bad today’s residents have it.



Have a great week!

  2. Im not a physician but like reading your’s and The White Coat blogs. A lot of good information/ viewpoints and inspiration. Look forward to them every week. Keep up the good work!

    • Thank you, Arrgo! Everyone is welcome here. WCI is a great source of information. I like to think of PoF as being complementary and perhaps offering a slightly different viewpoint on some issues, but we do have a lot in common.

  3. Hi PoF, it is great that you write these “Best” posts, it helps to not to miss any precious article from others. Keep up the good work!
