The Doctors Company Offers Educational Video Series — Financial and Workplace Well-Being for Doctors: Lessons for Life After Medical School
November 17, 2022by
The Doctors Company announced today that it is offering a new lecture series, Financial and Workplace Well-Being for Doctors: Lessons for Life After Medical School, from Ronald H. Wender, MD, FACA, chairman emeritus and professor of anesthesiology at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and member of The Doctors Company Board of Governors. This free, academic lecture series is designed to help doctors take control of their financial and workplace well-being, so they can focus on what they do best — providing superior patient care.
“The Doctors Company is proud to partner with Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to offer this lecture series to newly practicing physicians,” said Richard E. Anderson, MD, FACP, chairman and CEO of The Doctors Company and TDC Group. “It is in our mission to serve those who provide care, and we anticipate all physicians will find this series valuable.”
In response to a 2021 California Medical Association survey that found 64% of physicians expressed a desire for financial guidance, and 95% of physician practices reported concern about their financial well-being, the 23-part video series provides expert advice on the realities of financial planning, medical malpractice and hospital economics that physicians encounter upon graduating medical school.
“When you leave medical school, you need to be prepared for managing debt, finances and patients who may sue you; we want medical providers to be ready for these harsh realities,” Wender said. “In my forty-six years of practice, I saw many healthcare providers overwhelmed with life challenges. I hope this will be a useful resource for new physicians in their future endeavors.”
Each lecture includes a question/answer addendum section with supplemental information.
