Ep 7 - The FIRE training doctors actually need
If FIRE training triggers thoughts of mandatory FIRE safety training, you’ll be relieved to hear I’m NOT about to patronise you on whether to use the powder or water extinguisher on a live electrical fire.The FIRE I want to tell you about is Financial Independence Retire Early. This is the FIRE training that can help doctors have the freedom to work when and how they want without worrying about money. https://www.medicsmoney.co.uk/fire-doctors-financial-independence/

Customer ReviewsSee All
I’m loving all these amazing financial tips and more recently an interview with a doctor practicing FIRE and one who is a CEO for a tech company as well as a GP. Look forward to more of these kind of podcasts.
Wish we had this before
This is a must listen for all junior doctors starting out.
Thank you so much for this! If not already planned could you please discuss how to challenge a tax rebate that has been rejected. For example an exam resit or an exam that meets the EIM32535 criteria but isn’t on the approved list EIM32540 (or would you just recommend getting an accountant for this?)
