Abstract

Student loans do not have to be a barrier to building wealth. All too frequently, recent graduate veterinarians are paying more than their income requires towards their student loans, sacrificing other areas of financial health in order to do so. Financial resources are limited and timing is important when it comes to financial wellness and building wealth. The earlier you can start, the better your long-term self will be. Allocating your income wisely after graduating from veterinary school can help you jump-start your financial plan and build wealth long-term while reducing the stress around student loan repayment.
