Webcast: Money Management for Graduating Medical Students

Managing your money as a resident

Watch the Webinar: February 21 at 2 p.m.

You may be in medical school now, but residency and the financial decisions that accompany the transition from student life will be here soon.

Join the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)(www.aamc.org) to learn what you should know about money by the time you open your Match day envelope.

From paying back your loans and earing new income to buying a house and moving, there are many financial topics that are important to think about as graduation approaches. Once residency begins, the demands of training can make it a challenge to give these subjects the attention they deserve.

Hear from AAMC debt management expert Julie Gilbert and a family medicine residency program director Blake Fagan, MD,  discuss the major financial concepts and key debt management strategies every student should know before they graduate. They’ll share real-world examples and insights so that you 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 a number of 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.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the webcast, participants will be able to:

  • Identify resources to help navigate financial topics after medical school
  • Understand how to select a loan repayment option
  • Establish solid financial practices for success in residency and beyond
