The medical space is filled with an increasing number of specialties branching into a variety of subspecialties, and the field of cardiology is not an exception with specialties ranging from electrophysiologists (EP), invasive and non-invasive cardiologists, as well as interventional and non-interventional cardiologists. With each level of specialty, a high-level of knowledge and medical skills are required.
The challenge of becoming a cardiologist is not limited only to the number of years spent between medical school as an undergraduate, training, and practicing but also requires quite a bit of money to complete the program.
However, your most valuable asset as a cardiologist is not the amount you earn but your ability to continue working. But what happens if the unexpected occurs (such as sudden illness and injury), which might deter you from continuing to work? A severe financial blow might set in and could result in emotional distress.
This is where disability insurance comes in. With a disability insurance policy on hand, your usual income is guaranteed. You can feel relieved that your financial needs are covered even if you’re unable to practice.
