Currently a student

I am currently a student in med school to earn my doctorate (3 years left). After graduating, I will have a ton of debt and would like to get out of it as soon as possible. I will also be making a nice living and would like to get into investing. I'm new to the whole thing and I'm not sure where to start. Everyone says to read and gain knowledge. I've been trying to do that, but a lot seems over my head and/or there is a ton of garbage to sift through. I would like to begin while still in school, therefore, I'll have a better idea of how to invest properly when I am making a healthy income. Can anyone point me in the right direction or offer some advice?

Re: Currently a student

You're 3 years up on your med school doctorate and you want something to read in your spare time? Please just concentrate on your studies.

Your debt will be significantly less in real terms in 3 years time. This will put you streets ahead profitablity-wise of most of your contemporaries who have been trading or investing over that same period.

3 years is also a long time in terms of what's going to be hot from an investment perspective.

Plus you don't know how you're going to be shaping up. Round that time you may need to use those funds for more local infrastructure utilisations.

Start looking at investments when you're estbalished in your day job and you have something free and clear of your normal running expenses at home to invest.
