The Memphis Medical Society Expands Money & Medicine Series After Successful Pilot Classes for UTHSC Students

The Memphis Medical Society expands their new financial education programing, Money & Medicine, to include seminars for physicians in all stages of career.

“After our initial six-week medical student education course, we received feedback that our members were craving even more levels of financial insight,” says MMS CEO Clint Cummins. “Personal, as well as business finances are a huge part of practicing medicine no matter what career stage the person is in, and our organization is pleased to be able to provide support for our members in this manner.”
The next Money & Medicine program will be for medical students on November 5, 2019, at 11:30 a.m. Daniel Burke is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and the President of Burke Financial Group, LLC, a Nashville, Tennessee, company dealing with personal, business, and estate planning.

Burke will present on financial wellness: investments and retirements. All UTHSC medical students are welcome to attend.

The second Money & Medicine seminar will be an introductory estate planning workshop for practicing physicians on November 6, 2019, at MMS’s office. Dan H. Murrell, CFRE, Director of Planned Giving at The University of Memphis will present: Will & Estate Planning: Planning for the largest single transfer of wealth you may ever control. “Physicians know planning for the future is extremely important; however, taking the time to sit down and map out your wishes is key,” says Cummins. “We are happy that so many members are interested in gaining insight and best practices when it comes to making these decisions.”

Future classes and seminars will be posted on MMS’s website: Topics will include medical coding, contracting and others recommended through member surveys.
