The North Carolina Medical Society recently began offering a financial education program to benefit our resident members and potential members. Two sessions have been held so far with 30 people attending the one held in Fayetteville and a dozen more taking part at the session in Durham.
Research has shown that personal finance is a key area of interest for young physicians as they enter practice since they often have considerable debt, but also a substantial income. Proper planning is vital to ensuring a strong financial start. The NCMS has joined with two seasoned financial planners, Andrew Bernstein, JD, CFP and Smith Andrews, who have extensive experience working with residents and physicians.
If you would like to learn more about organizing an hour-long Financial Education Seminar for your group, please contact Will Barnett, NCMS Director of Membership, or call him at 919-833-3836 x130.
