Finn - Thanks for being open about your situation. Can't say that I'm powerfully motivated to share the grisly details of my own financial shenanigans, so I think it takes guts and humility. Like an M&M, hopefully it keeps the next guy from findings themselves in the same situation, wondering w...

Re: Critique a 31 year old new doctor's plan

I'm surprised nobody has suggested this, but is it possible for you and a bunch of your fellow ER docs to go to the hospital bigwigs and demand a rotating shift schedule that you can tolerate?

Re: Critique a 31 year old new doctor's plan

Well, you spent a ton of money but the good thing is, you did realize how to get back on track which is the key here.. I don't think you need to sell your car.
