Financial independence for physicians can be challenging. In addition to foregoing nearly a decade of meaningful income, many physicians come out of medical school with student loans that can be in the six (and now even seven) figures. All the while physician income has remained flat relative to inflation. Consequently reaching financial independence can be far more difficult for physicians now than those who practiced decades ago.

Still, as financial advisor Dave Denniston notes, financial independence is indeed feasible. By taking the time and effort and getting the appropriate help, doctors can be well on their path to financial independence.

In this episode, Mr Denniston recounts his very personal story of how he developed a podcast to help doctors reach financial independence. Furthermore, he explains what financial independence means and why he considers it so important for doctors to purse it. Finally, he discusses some of the challenges that have impeded true financial freedom and how doctors, especially direct primary care doctors, can take the steps necessary to overcome them.
