The Memphis Medical Society and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center plan to offer medical students a basic financial principles course with important customizations that could help them prepare for the uniquely large debt they may incur as a result of their education.
The course is expected to begin later this summer. Physicians interested in participating as facilitators are welcome and asked to call 901-761-0200.
"Much of what we hear from physicians pertains to what they wish they would've learned in medical school," said Clint Cummins, Society CEO. "Most of it revolves around financial management and fiscal responsibility. This is step toward filling that hole in their training."
