About the Author
James D. Turner, MD, is a husband, father of three, author, inventor, and blogger at The Physician Philosopher. More about his work can be found at www.thephysicianphilosopher.com. He also happens to be a physician practicing academic anesthesiology. On a side note, he had managed to pay off all $200,000 of his student loan debt in 19 months and has increased his net worth by $250,000 in just 12 months out of training.
While in training, a few books and a couple of conversations opened his eyes to the fact that he had accrued way more debt than I should have in training, but (despite that), he could still be financially independent in his early 40’s.
