Managed care and government-led initiatives to control health care costs have decreased physician compensation.
Physicians must now carefully plan their practices and seek financial security in a manner that is markedly different from other professionals. To do so, physicians and their advisors must be well informed about the growing range of financial planning options to choose the course that balances risk, cost, time horizon, outcome and their own personal economic style.
This innovative guide confronts the reality that personal financial planning for physicians is decidedly more complex than it is in other professions.
Financial Planning for Physicians and Advisors describes a personal financial planning program to help doctors avoid the perils of harsh economic sacrifice. It outlines how to select a knowledgeable financial advisor and develop a comprehensive personal financial plan, and includes important sections on:
insurance and risk management
asset diversification and modern portfolio construction
income tax and retirement planning, and
succession and estate planning.
When fully implemented, this book will help physicians and their financial advisors develop an effective long-term financial plan. This book includes the following contributions:

"The Financial Planning Handbook for Physicians and Advisors is essentially a 'how-to book' on finance, financial planning and related topics for healthcare providers. Fortunately for patients, medicine requires a high degree of professional training, both in terms of science and technology. Unfortunately for providers, it affords little time for learning about financial or investment planning... The coverage is both broad and yet detailed, ranging from basic macroeconomic factors that affect our national economy, such as the Gross Domestic Product (a single figure that summarize the business activity of the US), to the more mundane activities of maintaining cash flow, college funding, tax reduction strategies, home mortgages and even correcting credit card reporting errors. More sophisticated topics include: debt and equity investment vehicles, derivatives, mutual fund and hedge fund investing, portfolio management and risk analysis, and the new laws on tax, retirement, and estate planning. The book rightly concludes with practice succession planning for doctors and a chapter on the psychological meaning of money itself... Simply put, my recommendation is to read the Financial Planning Handbook for Physicians and Advisors and 'reap'." - Frank A. Cappiello, President, McCullough, Andrews & Cappiello, Inc., Distinguished Visiting Professor of Finance, Loyola College, Maryland
