The pandemic may well have blurred your vision of a career in emergency medicine, but it need not have obscured it. In this live video recording from our May 4 webinar, Drs. James Ahn and Matthew Pirotte, practicing emergency physicians and leaders at their respective academic medical centers, share up-to-the-minute financial advice to help you navigate through uncertain times. 

From residency to their early career days to current day, Ahn and Pirotte discuss the personal finance decisions they’ve made that have set them up for success, as well as how monetary goals and spending behavior should evolve over time.
