Thank you for reading. Spending a little bit of your valuable attention here means a lot to me.
This is the internet and I have a fragile ego, so the easiest way you can support this site is by heaping praise on me and sharing my writing with your friends.
You can also support me effortlessly by utilizing one of the various affiliate relationships I have if they happen to also suit your fancy. I don’t do ads around here, but I am willing to try to share an occasional discount code or two with you fine people.
The easiest way is probably by visiting Amazon via my site before shopping. This site is a member of Amazon Associates, so they give me a sliver of your purchase as a commission (and it costs you nothing). You could even buy one of my books there.
I have links and breakdowns here for the major companies offering student loan refinancing with cashback offers for readers. Whether you use mine or someone else’s, you should always use a referral link if you choose to refinance. It’s free money. Keep in mind, lots and lots of people should not refinance.
As someone who wrote the book, I feel strongly that anyone with the inclination can manage their own loans. But not everyone has the time or desire. In that situation, I point readers to my internet friend Travis Hornsby (plus you get an extra 6-months of follow-up Q&A).
I maintain a great list of legitimate companies that offer paid physician surveys, several of which offer signup bonuses.
The folks at Pattern do a great job breaking down your options for free. Every physician needs disability insurance, and even every post-match fourth-year student should take the chance to see what it will cost to get a policy. The earlier the better.
LeverageRx is a totally free handy platform that will let you rapidly comparison shop multiple physician loan lenders.
Medical Test Prep
Alas, UW doesn’t offer discounts. But I do have 10% off BoardVitals (code BW10), 25% off Lecturio, 15% off ExamGuru (code BWBW15), and 10% off TrueLearn (code benwhite_TL). BoardVitals is currently 20% off with code SPRING until April 11, 2021.
MRI Online has a big educational offering with tons of radiology lectures and cases (reviewed here). Attendings can get 10% off with code BW_ATTENDING. Residents/fellows can email firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount.
Orbit CME (reviewed here) is a browser-based plugin service that automatically tracks the papers and medical education websites you read and effortlessly gives you itemized CME credits. It’s pretty great. Readers get $20 off any plan.
While I’m an affiliate for the White Coat Investor courses, unfortunately, there isn’t any baked-in everyday discount.
I believe more people should own their digital presence instead of ceding control to social media platforms where the half-life of your writing is minutes. Here is my advice about starting a website/blog. I use Dreamhost (link offers $50 off unlimited hosting), and another popular WordPress host is Bluehost. Either one is great for folks starting off who want to do things themselves.
If you just want to have a pretty site without worrying at all about the backend details, I heartily recommend Squarespace.
