Beyond Med School: MEDSKL works with RBC to launch free online financial education for medical students

Beyond Med School: MEDSKL works with RBC to launch free online financial education for medical students

PR Newswire

TORONTO, Nov. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - With the average total debt of medical school graduates now exceeding $200,0001, and financial stress and uncertainty contributing to doctor burnout, building financial acumen is more important than ever for the next generation of physicians.

MEDSKL, a leading e-learning platform which reaches medical students from more than 400 universities globally, aims to tackle this issue with the launch of a dedicated financial literacy channel. Financeology: where medicine, business and personal finance intersect will help medical students and new doctors improve their knowledge of personal finance and practice efficiency. Launched in collaboration with RBC Healthcare, the channel offers the next generation of physicians key personal finance strategies to help them make sound financial decisions so that they can focus on what matters most: helping patients.

"Student debt has risen three-fold over the past few decades. This is causing significant doctor stress and burnout," said Dr. Sanjay Sharma, a professor of ophthalmology at Queen's University and the founder of MEDSKL. "We have partnered with over 200 leading specialists to help teach students around the world how to be better clinicians. Today we are excited to launch our Financeology channel to address another core need: how doctors can make good personal and business financial decisions."

MEDSKL's Financeology channel launches with a series of animated lessons focusing on the concept of good versus bad debt. The channel will feature modules to educate doctors about business fundamentals, and making their practices more efficient as the cost of operating a clinic increases, while managing increased patient demand as our population ages and as the impacts of the pandemic evolve. The channel is accessible for free to students, residents, and doctors at medskl.com

"We've worked with MEDSKL to co-create financial content that's relevant to medical students in the early stages of their careers," said Flora Do, Vice President, RBC Healthcare. "Many students have a learning gap when it comes to managing their personal finances. The MEDSKL platform enhances the training doctors receive at medical school to help them prepare for their careers, and life after school. We're proud to support MEDSKL and their innovative and accessible approach to e-learning, and our collaboration reflects the core mission of RBC Healthcare to support the personal and professional needs of healthcare professionals throughout their journey from student to practitioner."
