I will go so far as to say they [the Pillars of Wealth books] should be must reading for all medical students and residents.
– Dr. Stephen Schimpff, former CEO of the University of Maryland Medical Center
Most medical professionals (physicians, dentists, etc.) complete their residency or fellowship without sufficient knowledge of business and finance. This educational deficiency often leads them to make sub-optimal financial decisions. It also leaves them vulnerable to potentially unqualified or unscrupulous salespeople pitching a variety of financial products. In response, we created the Pillars of Wealth financial literacy initiative.
This was fantastic for my level of understanding and the exact right timing … I think Trainees (fellows or residents) … are the perfect target audience for this. I, like many other physicians, am extremely weary of financial “talks” and so this unbiased presentation was exactly what was needed from a knowledgeable source. The (Pillars of Wealth) series was on target given the primary objective of equipping us with the ability to ask the right questions as we make these decisions. – Cardiology Fellow at Johns Hopkins Hospital

In the rapidly evolving healthcare marketplace, all physicians, new and established, employed and independent, will appreciate the thorough and detailed exam which Dr. Bar-Or gives to that most private and sensitive of areas—their personal and business finances. – Richard E.
