Is it time to pursue the CFA credential?

Interested in a career in finance? Don't automatically go for an MBA. It could make more sense to pursue a CFA instead (or, you could pursue both).

According to this story on BusinessInsider: "people that are only CFA charterholders tend to make $27,000 more than people that only have a MBA, and $13,000 more than people that only have a MBA in Finance." I think those PayScale figures represent the "average" business professional working in the finance industry. A physician who transitions into a career in finance is at a very different level.

The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) credential is one of the most respected and recognized investment management designation in the world. The program provides you with a foundation of advanced investment analysis and real-world portfolio management skills.

Who is it for? Portfolio and wealth managers, investment and research analysts, professionals involved in the investment decision-making process, and finance students who want to work in the investment management profession

How long does it take? Approximately 4 years to complete 3 exams (Level I, II, and III)

So, if you're exploring the possibility of being a research analyst, a relationship manager, a corporate financial analyst, a financial advisor, a portfolio manager, or a consultant in the financial industry, then maybe it's time to consider the CFA credential. You can learn more about pursuing the CFA from the CFA Institute.

Physician Advisor sub-specialty for the HCQM certification

Want to get certified as a Physician Advisor? Earlier this year, two organizations formed an alliance to offer the first Physician Advisor as a sub-specialty for Health Care Quality and Management (HCQM) certification.
  • American Board of Quality Assurance and Utilization Review Physicians, Inc. (ABQAURP)
  • American College of Physician Advisors, Inc. (ACPA)
ABQAURP and ACPA formed the alliance to offer the first Physician Advisor sub-specialty for the HCQM certification. The HCQM certification and new sub-specialty align with ACPA’s mission to promote and expand the prominent role of the Physician Advisor in today's rapidly changing healthcare environment through education, certification, mentorship, and collaboration; as well as ABQAURP’s mission to improve the overall quality of health care that is provided to the consuming public. The Physician Advisor sub-specialty is endorsed by the ACPA, and will only be awarded to those physicians who have first achieved certification in HCQM.

Learn more about the Physician Advisor sub-specialty here.

Consider an encore career in social entrepreneurship

Thinking about an "encore career" as you plan your retirement? Consider pursuing something in social entrepreneurship. Maybe you can be inspired by viewing this video about the Ageing Well Think Tank and Innovation Collaborative: A collaboration between the University of Adelaide’s School of Nursing, and the Entrepreneurship, Commercialisation and Innovation Centre. The Ageing Well Think Tank and Innovation Collaborative is chaired by Professor Alison Kitson and Professor Noel Lindsay.

Here's a short video from the Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship to get you inspired:

Social entrepreneurs drive social innovation and transformation in various fields including education, health, environment and enterprise development. They pursue poverty alleviation goals with entrepreneurial zeal, business methods and the courage to innovate and overcome traditional practices.

The Schwab Foundation for Social Entrepreneurship fosters social entrepreneurs as an important catalyst for societal innovation and progress. For more information, visit:

Obesity and Knee Pain


Carrying too much body weight can do real damage to your knees — and set you up for a world of pain. Here's why.

If you've ever loaded your car's trunk with heavy objects or driven with four adult passengers, you may have noticed that the ride wasn't as smooth. Your car's shock absorbers probably didn't soak up the jolts from the bumps and the potholes as well as they would have with a lighter load. Similarly, if you're carrying too much…

than 100 tendons.

In a recent survey for the American Podiatric Medical Association, 53 percent

of respondents reported foot pain…
