In this PPhREI Network Roundup, Dr. Frey talks about his best financial mistake and I review the nine worst reasons to become a doctor.
The Prudent Plastic Surgeon
In this post, Dr. Frey reflects on his “best financial mistake.” By that, he means the expensive educational choices that he made for college and medical school. We’re strikingly similar in these choices. Like Jordan, I also chose to go to an expensive private college and an out of state medical school where I paid full price (with loans). Like Jordan, I also met my now wife during those years at school. And like Jordan, I ended up with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt because of school.
It’s so hard to second guess those types of decisions, because life happens in between the bullet points of our financial past. What are your best financial mistakes?

The Darwinian Doctor
There are a lot of reasons why people choose to start down the path towards medical school and a degree in medicine. However, some are better reasons than others. In this post, I reflect back to my own journey and what I know now as a surgeon who’s been through the training process. Given my attending experience over the last 7 years, I’ve now experienced both large and small hospital based medicine and also private practice. I’ve been employed and am now a locum tenens.
So I put the most common bad reasons into a big list and went to town explaining them. I know that some people won’t agree with my reasoning, but that’s the fun of content creation. Enjoy!
