2015 Report on U.S. Physicians’ Financial Preparedness

The 2015 Report on U.S. Physicians’ Financial Preparedness: Young Physicians Segment paints a clear picture of the financial challenges young physicians face. They typically begin their first year of practice 10 years behind their undergraduate peers in other professions, having lost an estimated $71,000 in potential savings during those years of training.
