How Much Money Does a Doctor Need to Retire?

How much money does a doctor need to retire and enjoy a typical “doctor retirement”? Short answer: It depends.

True, some physicians will need that much or more, but don’t assume because you heard that number somewhere that you’ll never be able to retire. 

Thousands of people retire every day with less than one million dollars in retirement assets, and many physicians can retire quite comfortably with retirement assets in a range of $2 Million to $5 Million in today’s dollars.
