Summary

Written by a practicing emergency physician, The White Coat Investor is a high-yield manual that specifically deals with the financial issues facing medical students, residents, physicians, dentists, and similar high-income professionals. Doctors are highly-educated and extensively trained at making difficult diagnoses and performing life-saving procedures. However, they receive little to no training in business, personal finance, investing, insurance, taxes, estate planning, and asset protection.

This book fills in the gaps and will teach you to use your high income to escape from your student loans, provide for your family, build wealth, and stop getting ripped off by unscrupulous financial professionals. Straight talk and clear explanations allow the book to be easily digested by a novice to the subject matter yet the book also contains advanced concepts specific to physicians you won't find in other financial books.

This book will teach you how to:

  • Graduate from medical school with as little debt as possible
  • Escape from student loans within two to five years of residency graduation
  • Purchase the right types and amounts of insurance
  • Decide when to buy a house and how much to spend on it
  • Learn to invest in a sensible, low-cost and effective manner with or without the assistance of an advisor
  • Avoid investments which are designed to be sold, not bought
  • Select advisors who give great service and advice at a fair price
  • Become a millionaire within five to 10 years of residency graduation
  • Protect your hard-won assets from professional and personal lawsuits
  • Avoid estate taxes, avoid probate, and ensure your children and your money go where you want when you die
  • Minimize your tax burden, keeping more of your hard-earned money
  • Decide between an employee job and an independent contractor job
  • And so much more

not the kind of book to listen to

Would you try another book from James M. Dahle MD and/or Troy W. Hudson?

no

What did you like best about this story?

good down to earth examples

Could you see The White Coat Investor being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

no

Any additional comments?

May be a five-star book, but not necessarily the kind of book to listen to in Audible as you miss the graphs and may get lost in the numbers.

why read hyperlinks?

about half of the words read are "dash" when he's reading hyperlinks, most of which are on the blog anyway. also, the book is geared toward the resident, leaving anyone who is not in their 20's a bit regretful.

Excellent info for Doctors and others

This is a great book for doctors and professionals at all stages of their careers. Insightful and concise advice.

One limited drawback to the audiobook version is that there are references to charts and figures. If there was a downloadable compendium, then it would make the experience of the audiobook more valuable and complete.

Pearls

Most physicians can relate to the rare and treasured experience, when that Expert Attending shares their "clinical pearls" -- beautifully value-dense collections of years of knowledge across several disciplines by an astute mind. It is always time well spent, an epiphany to residents, yet also a great value even to the experienced.
Jim Dahle shares real Financial Pearls here. No wasteland of mostly irrelevant information to sift through, incomplete explanations, or verbose ramblings with hidden secondary motives. Just solid financial wisdom, distilled.

Read it, and then thank him.
Thank you Jim!

20+years of school without a financial education

Your website, podcast, and book have been a revelation for me. I’m a first generation college student, and my family was in the lower third of income. I was embarrassed to talk to peers in school because of my family’s means and my lack of knowledge. I didn’t feel I had a starting point to educate myself. You’ve made me feel much more comfortable avoiding significant financial obstacles in the future and discussing with colleagues. Now I also have a base to learn for my specific situation.

An eye-opener

From a physicians perspective who knows and understands the ropes of finances and investing. He provides a best approach method to physicians investments and a few tricks that I intend to employ myself.
I recommend this to all medical students and anyone that's further in their training. the sooner you start, the better you will be.

Finally a book on financial management that I can relate to and that relates to me.

This book was gifted to me by a colleague at work. As some one who spent most of his 20s and 30s in medical training, all I can say is I wish I had access to Jim’s advice earlier. I am amazed how much I did not know and how much more I do now. Can’t wait to read it one more time. I feel more informed and confident before meeting my financial advisor now. Thank you Dr Dahle!
