Financial Residency is a podcast devoted to helping you become more confident in your finances. Part of this process is working with people who enjoy helping physicians as much as we do!
From time to time, we vet the businesses and experts we love working with. And because you are at the heart of our show, we thought it was fair to provide you with a recommended list of resources we’d go to bat for. Feel free to look through the list. If you found a good fit, we want to know about it.
Thank you for allowing Financial Residency to be with you on your financial journey. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our latest episodes and become more confident in your finances!
Physician Wealth Services (PWS) is a fee-only financial planning firm devoted to the financial well-being of physicians. Ryan Inman, founder of PWS, developed a sense of responsibility to help physicians with their financial goals after witnessing how vulnerable his wife was to poor financial advice during residency. He was shocked at how many advisors tried to take advantage of her and her peers.
Ryan started PWS as a fee-only practice so he could work exclusively with physicians who could truly benefit from unbiased, quality financial advice. Working with Ryan is simple and transparent. There are no assets under management (AUM) fees, no products being sold or commissions being paid out. Everything is included for a flat monthly fee, the way it should be.
Ryan helps physicians create lives they love using the resources they have. To help them feel in control of their money, in the same way you make a patient feel better about their health. You may also recognize Ryan as the Creator and Host of the Financial Residency Podcast, a free resource to help increase financial literacy (and also the reason why you’re here!)

Unlike medicine, which has a standardized path that physicians must take to gain the education, training and experience requirements necessary to obtain board certification, the insurance and financial services industry does not.
Working with an agent that is familiar with the underwriting of both disability and life insurance policies for physicians can all but guarantee a smooth underwriting process in which the desired outcome is likely.
