“Finance Fundamentals for Medical Professionals” will walk participants through three essential personal finance principles: building wealth, saving for retirement and estate planning.

The presentation begins with a discussion of wealth building. This is a broad financial concept that encompasses everything from starting an emergency fund to building credit. The first half of the webinar also focuses on opportunities for income-driven debt repayment and loan forgiveness for medical professionals.

The second portion of the webinar covers saving for retirement. Each expert will propose a benchmark for staying on track to retire. They will also discuss ways to catch up on saving for retirement if you’ve fallen behind.

The webinar will conclude with a discussion of estate planning. This key component of financial wellness goes beyond making a will. Estate planning also includes naming powers of attorney, developing a succession plan for your business and purchasing life insurance. Experts will also discuss why disability insurance is especially important for medical professionals. Experts Lead Webinar
