Financial Wellness for Physicians

April 09, 2020


Presented by WisMed Assure and the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation

Guest: Rufus Sweeney, third year medical student at UW School of Medicine and Public Health

After being talked into buying an insurance product that did not fit his financial needs and goals, third-year medical student Rufus Sweeney decided to do something about it. Funded by a grant from the Wisconsin Medial Society Foundation, he developed a financial wellness course that is being offered to students at the School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He also recorded a series of podcasts about each course module.

In this first podcast in the series, Rufus and former Wisconsin Medical Society COO Peter Welch discuss why the course is important and how to identify and achieve your most important financial goals.
