How much time do you take to make financial decisions?

Where do you get your information from regarding financial matters as you progress through your training as a medical student (obtaining debt) to a resident (accumulating more debt) to an attending (managing debt)?

This session will explore these questions and:

  • The gender difference in salary and negotiating
  • Women as the breadwinners in relationships
  • With highlights from a female physician’s experience and backed by literature and instructional programs, this lecture hopes to engage you to take more time with your financial decisions.
  • This is an introductory lecture geared mostly to women but suitable for all.
