S4 Episode 22-[Physician’s Fireside Chat] with Tarang Patel from Doctor Money Matters Podcast

May 25, 2018

Welcome back to our monthly fireside chat with a physician to get to know their journey, their joys, and their struggles with finances and outside of finances.  Our special guest today is a fellow podcaster, a hospital-employed radiologist, and prior to that, he served as a physician in the U.S. Air Force.  His podcast is Dr. Money Matters.

In this podcast you will:

  • Learn about Tarang's upbringing and background leading to his career
  • Take in his experience of not getting into medical school the first try, but how his perseverance lead him to where he is now
  • Attain an inside look into the boom from Tarang's perspective during his medical school years
  • Hear about his residency years and what lead him to the radiology field and his service in the Air Force
  • Learn about some investment mistakes Tarang's father, who is also a physician, made early on his residency and practice in the US, after moving the family from Africa to the United States and what Tarang has set in place to avoid those same mistakes
  • Receive encouragement from Tarang to develop something outside of your practice that you're passionate about
