Medscape surveyed more than 19,200 physicians in more than 27 specialties on their compensation, inclusive of questions on physician debt and net worth. The "Physician Wealth and Debt Report 2017" offers insight into how physicians manage their money.

The survey inquired about physicians' bad investments, and these six appeared most frequently among their responses:

 

1. Family or friend's business

 

2. Real estate, inclusive of building or buying one's own house

 

3. Start-up company

 

4. Private practice

 

5. Mutual funds and stocks

 

6. Hospitals and surgical centers
