What They Don’t Teach You in Medical School: Managing Debt, Business, and Lessons From the Wealthy With Dr. Jeff Anzalone [Limitless MD, Episode 155]


“In medical school and dental school, they don’t teach you anything about the important stuff… like how to run a practice and how to manage money.” – Dr. Jeff Anzalone

If you’re like most MDs, you probably got out of school with a mountain of debt, tried to push ahead in your career, and eventually realized you actually don’t know how to set yourself up for long-term success. Not without trading time for money, anyway.

And what if you get injured? What happens to your medical future? What will happen to your family? Will Disability insurance cover it?

That’s what it was like for the Founder of Debt Free Doctor, Dr. Jeff Anzalone – who is on the show today to share his transformative journey from $300k in student loan debt to creating multiple streams of income outside of dentistry.

An injury exposed the risks of solely relying on his dental practice for income, and this prompted Dr. Anzalone to pursue real estate investing and business ownership. But it didn’t come easy. He had no clue what he was doing.

Through podcasts, YouTube, blogs, networking, and one formative meeting with a billionaire real estate investor, Dr. Anzalone learned the strategies commonly employed by high-net-worth individuals.

Dr. Anzalone now focuses on educating healthcare professionals through platforms like DebtFreeDoctor.com. For physicians, dentists, and other medical practitioners seeking to diversify income sources and optimize their professional and personal lives, this interview offers insightful philosophies and actionable strategies for you to implement right away.
