Financial Wellness

PERSONAL FINANCE:   Aashish Shah, MD19 again this year has teamed up with the AMS Office of Financial Aid to help increase your financial acumen.  His tips on being in charge of your finances and investing early can guide you to a future of financial freedom.  His first 2018-2019 presentation was during the MD22 Orientation.  His first financial publication, Ten Simple Finance Lessons for the Medical Student and Young Physician, is available in pdf form on this site.  It is relevant and worthwhile to read!  We have also added his three videotaped workshops for your viewing.  Workshops will be held throughout 2018-2019 and are open to all AMS students. 

AMS FINANCIAL LITERACY PROGRAMS:  The AMS Office of Financial Aid welcomes individualized financial counseling sessions before, during, and after your medical school years.  We are available weekdays from 8:30am - 5:00pm, so please schedule an appointment at your convenience by emailing us at [email protected] or giving us a call at 401-863-1142.  We provide easily accessible, individual financial guidance, and encourages medical students to join us.

AAMC FINANCIAL WELLNESS:  The American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) has created several useful financial tools.   The FIRST program - Financial Information, Resources, Services, and Tools - was created to help guide you financially through your medical school and residency years.  Please take some time to utilize the MedLoan Organizer and Calculator and the Education Debt Manager.
