Future Proof Shares - 1/17/2017

We live in an amazing world of constant information, sometimes it can get overwhelming.  "Future Proof Shares" is a weekly series with the goal of selecting a few interesting pieces of media on money and medicine from around the Interwebs.  They may be old or new but will always be new to me.  This series is inspired by "The Sunday Best" by my fellow physician money blogger Physician on FIRE (PoF).  Enjoy!

Future Proof Detour - Interview Jitters

Future Proof Detour - Interview Jitters

Welcome to another Future Proof Detour post.  Every once in awhile I like to talk about something outside of finance.  Many medical students and residents are currently jetting across the country in search of the perfect residency/fellowship.  As you may have read from a previous post, I myself am in the process of finding the perfect Interventional Radiology (IR) fellowship.  Today I want to take a detour and talk a little about what I call the "Interview Jitters."

Future Proof Docs - White Coat Investor (WCI)

Welcome to another installment of Future Proof Docs.  I am very thankful to today's guest for his guidance and generosity in all things blogging.  In fact, he was one of the inspirations for me starting FPMD nearly 2 years ago.  Long time readers would remember back then this site went by a different name - White Coat Money (WCM).  As they say, "Imitation is the sincerest of flattery."  You all know who I am referring to - here is the FPMD Q&A with the godfather of physician finance blogs - White Coat Investor.

Future Proof Shares - 1/10/2017

Last week, I shared with you the very first special edition of Future Proof Shares.  Turns out you loved it!  The John Oliver special ended up being the 2nd most read post of the week behind Pay as You Earn (PAYE) vs. Revised Pay as You Earn (REPAYE).  I will keep that in mind going forward - perhaps more special edition Shares?  For today, we return to the regular format.  Here are 5 posts worth reading.

    FPMD 2017 New Year's Resolutions (Plus 2016 Review)

    There is no better time to set some new goals for yourself than the beginning of the new year.  Each year, I will share with you 3 New Year's resolutions that deal with money.  Why 3?  Because best things come in threes - the Godfather trilogy, the original Star Wars (episodes IV-VI), Virchow's Triad etc.  And also because I can't keep track of more than 3 things.  In 2016's FPMD New Year's Resolutions - Money Edition, I shared with you what I had planned to achieve in my financial life.  Let's review...

    With the new year, I want to share with you 3 new additions to the FPMD Blogroll.  For those unfamiliar, the Blogroll offers a small but excellent selection of physician run blogs.  These doctors not only have the passion for helping their medical colleagues, but also managed to find time in their busy lives to share that passion with us in the form of a website.  Enjoy!

    Future Proof Shares - 1/3/2017 (John Oliver Special)

    Future Proof Shares - 1/3/2017 (John Oliver Special)

    Welcome to the first Future Proof Shares post of 2017!  Today I want to introduce the very first special edition of Future Proof Shares.  If you look online, turn on your radio or your television, you'll run into many of us talking about money.  Some have broader audiences (think Dave Ramsey), others may cater to a specific demographic (this blog for example).  However, in 2016, it would be hard to find a media personality who's made more impact on Americans' financial lives as John Oliver.

    PMD: How to Defeat Wishful Thinking

    PMD: How to Defeat Wishful Thinking

    My residency program recently invited Dr. Jay Baker from Duke University to give a talk on mammography.  In addition to being a renowned expert in breast imaging, Dr. Baker happens to also be a fantastic orator.  The entire talk was excellent.  I won't bore you with the details that only a radiologist should know.  However, a portion of the talk that really grabbed my attention was titled "what happens when you break the rules - be careful of wishful thinking" which I will share with you.
