Publisher's 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

    "The Book You're Looking For"

    I bought this book as I was in search of concrete and practical information on investing and personal finance. This book is rife with helpful info that is specific to the challenges facing physicians, dentists, and other high earning professionals that have taken great opportunity cost to get to where they are. You'll get more out of this book than others two times it's length. Also be sure to check out the website!

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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!

    Story
    "A must for any physician or physician in training"

    This book is amazing! I wish I had come across this information earlier in my career. However, I feel lucky that I stumbled across the website, and then the book, when I did, early in my attending career. Dr Dahle gives clear, concise information that was easy for someone if very limited financial knowledge and experience, like me, can understand. The suggestions are straight forward and seem easy enough to implement. One can easily get lost in the alphabet and number soup of the financial world, and Dr. Dahle does a great jibe explaining it all. Thank you, Dr. Dahle!

    Story
    "solid start to finance for physicians"

    Short and to the point. Gives resources to further pursue the details of the rough outline in this book. It is basically the money advice you should get from a money savy patent in the top income bracket. Unbiased advice from a guy who has done his homework and doesn't want to see physicians squander the wealth they should generate. Thanks for sharing!

    Story
    "Narrator not great"

    Please remove the dictated websites and sources at the end of each chapter. Maybe place all in a single website organized by chapter so audible readers can access at a later time. Listening to long web addresses can be frustrating.

    That said the content is extremely helpful. Definitely worth the read.
