Lots of listener's voices on this episode. The speakpipe to record your questions is working well! I answer your colleagues questions about contributing to a Roth IRA for those married filing separately, taking out a 401(k) loan, funding HSAs, when it makes sense to file as an S Corp, exchanging an annuity, and more.

At some point in our financial lives, it will be time to buy a home. A physician mortgage can be a good vehicle for a young doctor who’s just out of school and has a more effective place to use their money than on a big down payment. These loans allow doctors to secure a mortgage with fewer restrictions and a lower down payment than a conventional mortgage. But if you’re further advanced in your career or deeper into your journey to financial freedom, buying a home with a conventional mortgage and then, later on, potentially refinancing that loan to a better rate with a shorter time frame could be a great move. Wherever you are in your financial journey, make sure you use the mortgage that will be most financially beneficial for you. Hop over to our recommended tab to learn more about all of your mortgage and refinancing options at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/mortgage. You can do this and The White Coat Investor can help.

I'm often asked questions about investing in a surgery center but it is something that I have no experience with. So I brought on someone who does have experience as well as a doctor that is just at the beginning of the surgery center investment in his career to discuss this type of opportunity, the pros and cons, and what you should be looking for when given the opportunity to invest.

I estimate that 80% of doctors need, want, and should use a financial advisor and/or an investment manager. Some investment gurus such as Dr. William Bernstein think my estimate is way too low. At any rate, if you want to use an advisor temporarily or for your entire life, there is no reason to feel guilty about it—just make sure you are getting good advice at a fair price. If you need help updating your financial plan or just getting one in place, check out our list of recommended financial advisors at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/financial-advisors.

Dr. Schofer is board certified in EM and currently serves in the U.S. Navy. Whenever I write anything inaccurate about being a military doctor he is gracious enough to set me straight. He has been a valuable resource to the WCI community and anyone who has ever thought about doing military medicine would do well to listen to this interview. There are a lot of unique aspects of practicing medicine in the military and we cover them in this episode.

Getting quality disability and life insurance should be the first financial chore for a doctor to complete. Most docs don't have the ideal policy for their gender, specialty, state, or health status and 1 in 7 doctors get disabled at some point during their career. Because these policies can only be purchased through brokers, we have put together a list of vetted agents who are experienced with working with the specific needs of medical professionals and who have your best interest at heart. If you have questions about insurance and what kind of policies would be the best fit for you, check out our insurance recommended list at https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/insurance and feel the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have the optimal policy in place. You can do this and The White Coat Investor can help.

Over the years, I’ve invested across the entire spectrum of real estate investments, from owning and managing an individual property and its tenant to buying and holding a REIT index fund. This has included investments with half a dozen crowdfunding sites, some individual syndicated investments bought directly from the syndicator and private real estate funds. Over time, I’ve gravitated more and more toward the real estate funds. In this episode I discuss the reasons why.
