Managing your money as a resident

Part 1: Personal Finance Essentials for Professionals

Part 2: Understanding Student Loan Repayment

In this two-part webcast series, the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)(www.aamc.org) explain what you should know about money as you transition into medical residency and early career.

Learn the major financial concepts and key debt management strategies every student should know before they graduate from AAMC debt management expert Julie Gilbert and family medicine residency program director Blake Fagan, MD.

Using real-world examples and insights, you gain the skills you need to feel prepared to make smart decisions about your money early in your career.

About this collaboration

As advocates for affordable medical education, the AAMC has developed many money management tools for students. These resources are aimed at helping all future physicians get the most out of their significant investment in medical school. Although the cost of this education is high, you can feel confident about your decision to pursue a career in medicine. The AAMC’s perspective as experts in paying for medical school complements the AAFP’s message about the immeasurable rewards of caring for patients as a family physician.
