First off, we want to be explicit that our goal here at DOCTORED MONEY is to be the premier resource for education on financial topics which affect physicians, future physicians, and everyone in between. We will always strive to update, rework, reword and add to the information we bring you so that it is not only informative and unbiased but is also digestible in the time period you have to devote to financial literacy.
We believe the existing materials on our Student Debt page conform to these three standards (informative, unbiased, and digestible) but we have reason to believe that not all of our many fans agree with us. Much of the feedback we received when we launched the site was that people thought it looked "awesome" and "very professional" but that people were planning on coming back to look at the learning materials later "when [they] have more time." We admit it's nice to have our egos stroked and we enjoy when people call the things we make pretty. But that isn't the point of the site! The point of the site is to help you get a grip on your financial situation and come out feeling less anxious with that "go get 'em" attitude you need to live your life. We want the site to be the proverbial "slap on the butt" you need as you walk back up to the pitching mound; or if baseball metaphors aren't your thing: the quick protein bar and caffeinated beverage you need to get through the next 20 hours of your Whipple procedure.
We digress, but our point is this: everything we put up on our site is meant to be helpful, not "when you have time" but right now! We know you don't have 10 hours to sit down and read through financial material (although we do feel like you owe it to yourself to study up a little); everything on the site can be read, digested and learned from in just a few minutes. Each Prezi presentation can be looked through in 10 mins or less. The W-4 page is arranged in increasing levels of complexity so that you can get the basic info you need up front and come back for additional increments to read more (maybe as you wait for the shuttle or train or whatever else you have to wait for in your life). And if you need to rush off to an emergency before you finish, that's no problem, run off and save the world and come back later to finish. And the last part of our rant is this: it all works on mobile! You don't have to be sitting at your desk, just whip out your million dollar smart gadget and head on over to www.doctoredmoney.org and get started. It is definitely a better time investment than browsing Instagram (unless you are looking at the @dailystoic posts, those are deep).
So now that we have stressed the digestibility of all our resources, let me introduce to you our latest resource that attempts to reach those of you who are extra crunched on time: Loan Scenarios.
