Several years ago, when I received my first salary, it felt like I was the happiest man on earth.

Yes, I know it is an exaggeration, and I received my humble salary as a resident. But at that time I thought it didn't matter. I just thought that it was "my own money".

I believed I should reward myself after all those years of hardships in Med school and internship. And so it happened.. I was in a buying spree!

I immediately bought some new clothes in a department of store. Then I bought a couple of PSP games. Oh yeah!

Now looking back, I realized how dumb and ignorant I was. And other doctors and doctors-to-be should not make the same mistake that I did.

Though I'm still quite far from receiving my own salary as I will be starting medschool this July, your article was a good read! Thanks doc! :)

It's never too early (and also never too late) learn basics of personal finance. Thank you for reading, and good luck on your journey in Medicine :-)

Security Bank takes Hassle-free account opening to a whole new level
 
Where else can you find a bank who not only offers an ALL-IN-ONE account, but also opens the account for you at the comforts of your clinics or even your own home?
 
Security bank offers this solution for busy people. With just a few clicks on their website, you can schedule for a Security Bank personnel to meet with you. They will bring the needed forms in a meet-up place of your choosing (wherever is most convenient) and open the account for you. Talk about personalized and hassle-free service!
 
Their amazing product offering is just icing on the cake. They have what they call an ALLACCESS account, which is a savings and a checking account in one. No need to worry about opening 2 accounts just so you can have a passbook—for traditional folks like me—and a check book and ATM card for easy access of funds. And best of all, they have a special program for doctors, open an account with ZERO initial deposit and NO maintaining balance!
