Many physicians are interested in investing in real estate syndications, but don't know where to start with doing their due diligence in potential deal offerings. This course is a great course led by active sponsors of these deals, which will teach you what syndications are, must know terminology, how to vet potential offerings, red flags to look out for, and how to decide which deals are right for your investor profile and risk tolerance. It is offered a few times a year and is currently open for enrollment here. It starts October 4th, and you can use promo code PSG500 for $500 off! Although this is still an investment, it's a great price for real estate courses of this type!

There is pre-recorded weekly content and homework, four weekly 'office hours' for coaching/Q/A, community mixers, opportunity partners, a 24/7 Facebook course community, connections to relevant networks of investment agents, lenders, accountants, and managers, and more.

Many physicians don't know where to start when it comes to personal finance. These courses/conferences by the White Coat Investor offer a great foundation in personal finance, and some even offer CME (can use your CME funds!). Even if you plan on using a financial advisor, it's very important to be able to recognize good advice from bad advice. A lot of this information can be found online for free, but these courses will present you with comprehensive content in an organized and easy to understand format, with nice short videos you can reference forever. A great way to learn for those of you that are too busy to curate the content online or prefer video to reading.
