This website is intended as a free educational resource, but content is copywrited and cannot be used without our written permission.
We, its founders, strive to keep this site free from conflicts of interest, especially financial conflicts. However, we realize that nothing is conflict-free and possible conflicts should be disclosed.
This site does not accept advertisements of any kind, nor support affiliate links. All costs are currently paid by personal funds from the founders of DOCTORED MONEY™. All donations to the site must be in the form of unrestricted educational funds, and we do not accept donations from commercial entities.
We believe financial literacy is immensely important and you should learn as much as you can from this site and other sources. It is critical that you understand that you are responsible for verifying any information on this site, and perform your due diligence prior to acting. You should assume the information here is as reliable as the medical information found on WebMD and proceed accordingly.
Founders' Conflicts of Interest Statements
Dr. Sotirios Keros
Sotirios owns a business related to financial planning, investment management, and tax preparation. His firm works only on an hourly or fixed-fee basis, and does not sell any products, make commissions, or accept referral fees of any kind, and otherwise does not profit from any specific recommendations or suggestions made on this site.
However, his affiliation with this site may increase exposure to him and his firm, and may be presumed to be one method to attract clients. The link to his blog and business on the “About Us” page may be seen as self-promotion. The potential of personal gain from increased traffic to this site is independent of any altruistic desire he may have to educate people on financial topics.
Additionally, one of Sotirios' personal and professional goals is to encourage the development of an embedded financial education curriculum within medical training (yes, he knows you are likely picturing flying pigs right now). His involvement with DOCTORED MONEY™ and exposure through this site may help him obtain research funding, employment opportunities or otherwise advance his career in this area.
Sotirios also knows that disclosing conflicts of interest enhances trust and thus his choice to disclose these conflicts is itself biased by conflicts.
Dr. Dalton Haslam
Dalton does not receive any direct financial benefit from his role in this site, but it looks very good on his resume and he may indirectly profit from better training and employment opportunities because of this fact going forward.
One of Dalton's goals is to encourage the development of financial literacy education embedded within medical training. His involvement with DOCTORED MONEY™ may help him obtain research funding, employment opportunities or otherwise advance his career in this area.
The potential of personal gain from increased traffic to this site is independent of any altruistic desire he may have to educate people on financial topics.
