Financial Preparedness, Retirement

2015 Report on U.S. Physicians’ Financial Preparedness: Women Physicians Segment

April 08, 2015

There is no doubt that the medical profession is changing rapidly, and gender is a big part of that story.  More than one-third of today’s U.S. physicians are women, and of all physicians age 40 and under, 49 percent are women. They all face the same personal financial challenges unique to their profession, and a healthy retirement heads the list of their financial goals. And per our latest national study – the 2015 Report on U.S. Physicians’ Financial Preparedness: Women Physician Segment © – there is good news: across all ages, more than half of women physicians are ‘ahead of schedule’ or ‘on track’ for meeting that goal.  

Differences in financial preparedness surface in age, attitude   

Yet the study also shows that while women physicians share top financial goals, there are differences in almost every other area of their personal financial lives. The differences show up clearly in comparing women physicians by age. Only some of these differences relate to where women physicians are in their career paths so the financial picture is complex. Areas addressed include goals and concerns, family situations, financial acumen and retirement readiness.    

Comprehensive report informs on wide range of personal financial topics 

We invite you to explore this comprehensive report to learn even more about today’s women physicians and their personal financial preparedness.  The full reportuses insights gained from three national surveys conducted by AMA Insurance of 3,077 women physicians. It also includes hard-won advice from women physicians themselves. 

We’ve felt privileged to get to know this unique group better, and to be able to offer insights and recommendations that can help them succeed in their personal financial lives. In fact, we hope you will forward the report to your colleagues, and as usual, we invite you to send us any questions or comments.
