6 winter 2015 PracticeLink Magazine was recently named Publication of the Year from the American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors (ASHPE), which recognizes the best publications in all of health care! Thanks for reading. Dear Physician, There's only so much a favorable call schedule, nice benefts and a generous compensation package will get you. The secret to a great quality of life—a practice where you want to practice and a community in which you want to plant, root and grow—is you. How you spend your money, your time and your efforts will have the greatest impact on how happy, healthy and balanced your post-training life becomes. PracticeLink can help. PracticeLink Magazine's Annual Quality of Life Issue can help you evaluate the opportunities and choices that will get you to your happy place. In our cover story, physician, author and "White Coat Investor" Jim Dahle, M.D., explores the idea that it's not income that matters most when determining your quality of life—it's "out-go." In "Forget the Joneses" on page 30, take a moment to examine how your spending habits now will set the tone for your future. Where you spend that future is another important factor that contributes to your overall quality of life. Author Marcia Turner explores the experiences of physicians living in various communities in "A Sense of Place" (page 42). And if you feel like much of your immediate future is infuenced by the weight of your student loans, you're not alone—but there's help. Journalist Marcia Noyes shows how other physicians have caught up and plowed forward when it comes to buying homes, planning for retirement and more.
