Financial advice for med students
I think Dr.Dahle has some great financial advice for med students. It’s a great resource, very straightforward and simple insights about loans/finances.
I heard about this podcast through VetGirl, and I’ve been listening to it ever since. I am a Canadian Veterinarian so some of the stuff doesn’t quite apply to me, but there is a lot of information I can apply as a Canadian professional. Great stuff.
