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 some or all of these elements.
Presenting, in no particular order, this week’s Sunday Best:
Tawcan nearly brought tears to me eyes with a touching tale about a young boy and his hard-working father. [when a man admits to almost crying, that means he actually cried, or immediately started thinking about football to prevent the tears from spilling] As a father of two young boys that I haven’t seen in awhile due to work obligations, I was moved by Another Reason to be Financially Independent.
A fellow homebrewer, physician, and new personal finance blogger InvestingDoc shares Financial Advice to Medical Students. Congrats on completing residency, and welcome to the other side!
In an oldie but goodie, Mrs. 1500 @ 1500Days dispels the myth that early retirement is only possible for those who make a lot of money. Pick up some frugality tips from the female perspective in You Don’t Have to Make $100,000 a Year to Retire Early.
Have you got a bad habit you’d like to kick to the curb? Good news, you’re halfway done according to EM physician Julie @ ChooseBetterLife. Read why in You’re Halfway to Kicking Your Bad Habit.
July 1st is a milestone day for physicians. Day One for new interns, residents, and fellows. Congrats to all of them and I hope they are prepared for the road ahead. Christopher Tedeschi, MD suggests @ KevinMD that they might not be in New Doctors May Be More Unprepared Than Ever. Yikes!

Anytime, Tawcan. Great post!
32 hours left in a 96 hour call. Not the greatest weekend, but I’ve had worse! Happy [Financial] Independence day to all!
Thanks for the mention! Heading to work now–ready to meet the newbies 🙂
Happy to feature you. Keep up the great work and go easy on the freshmen. This is what I envision: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hSwrNHKc-k&list=RD-hSwrNHKc-k#t=0
Turns out that so far, the new docs are great. The new scribes, however…
Yes, let’s base our charting, MDM, communication with our colleagues, and malpractice defense on some rising college juniors. I’m sure we’ll get the cream of the crop if we pay them $8/hr and not bother to train them.
