About the Financial Lecture Series

Financial Lecture Series

Our Financial Lecture Series features annual presentations made in March by PCOM staff and guests on certain financial topics. These presentations aim to prepare students for important, immediate financial decisions usually made soon after graduation. Although geared toward students who will soon be graduating, we encourage all students to attend to better prepare themselves for life after graduate school.

One of the first financial decisions you may make after graduation is the purchasing of a home. There are a great many details to home buying such as the correct type of financing to choose, the steps of the home buying negotiation, and the players involved. This session will help students demystify the home buying process as well as provide information on different types of mortgages including physician mortgages.

This will be very beneficial to any student that is graduating in the next two years. The goal of this presentation is to make sure students have a very good understanding of their options for repaying their loans. We will review all of the loan repayment options available to students and drill down the details of the income based repayment plans as well as the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.
