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!

  • I've talked about Disability Insurance before.  And it's one of those items that I strongly recommend, even if you are making a resident salary.  LeverageRx provides a more comprehensive review of the topic - The Ultimate Guide to Disability Insurance for Physicians and Dentists.
  • With the repeal of Obamacare becoming the battle cry of the new Trump administration and republican congress, have you stopped to consider how we got into this mess in the first place?  Dr. Kenneth Fisher shares some perspective in this guest post on Physician on Fire - Medicare: A Study in Chaos.
  • With the start of the new year, you know Uncle Sam and the IRS are gearing up to claim their share of your income.  Here's a timely piece from Money Peach - 48 Tax Deductions You are Forgetting.  Have you forgotten any?
  • Finding work-life balance may be difficult in many careers, but I would argue it is especially so for physicians and physician trainees.  Medical student Steven Zhang questions in this KevinMD article - Is work-life balance possible for doctors?  Is it?
  • Before you answer that question, I would like to ask you to read this article by a non-physician writer Derek Silvers - How to do what you love and make good money.
