Topics: Retirement Questions, Physician Home Loans, Residency, Financial Goals for 2017

Every week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After manually filtering through the millions of articles out there, I present a few that I impacted my life this week. This will also help lay the foundation for some of the topics that we’ll dig into deeper on this website.

Here's our Journal Club for the week, enjoy!

  • We all think about retirement. If we didn’t we wouldn’t have sites like mine or The White Coat Investor's. Here’s a great post on some Common Questions About Investing in Retirement. It was a great recap for me and got me thinking. Check out the great comments as well.
  • The White Coat Investor is playing a double header here on this week’s Journal Club. I used a physician loan to buy my home out of fellowship and it worked out great for me, but is it for everyone? Here’s a post titled My Experience Pursuing a Physician Mortgage Loan.
  • Back when I was in residency, we used to have to walk to the hospital through the snow, up a hill, in clogs. Then we’d stay there for 48 hours straight. Okay, the only part of this that’s the truth is that I wore clogs. Don’t we all feel that back in our day, things were much tougher? Investing Doc gives a rebuttal in Rant: Residency Was Not Harder Back in Your Day.

What a great start to 2017! I was slated to work on New Year’s Eve, but instead was able to give up that shift so I could….. sit on the couch and watch the ball drop with my wife. I can’t think of a better way to end 2016 and start 2017. I’m also currently on vacation with the wife and kids, our first as a complete family. Although it’s quite chaotic, it gives me a glimpse of what the next 15-20 years will look like. Again, I can’t think of a better way to spend my time and I’m grateful for this.

Here’s to a fantastic 2017, full of memorable experiences with great friends and family!!!
