Financial Advice, Accounting and Tax for Doctors in Training
When you are focused on your medical training, it's easy to neglect your finances and tax affairs - but this stage of your career is the ideal time to lay the foundation for your financial independence.
As one of South East Queensland's most trusted firms specialising in accounting for doctors, we have taken care of the finances of more than 3000 medical professionals as they move from internships and training through to consultancy or private practice.
We understand the opportunities and challenges you will face in your career throughout the years to come and can provide you with the best advice and management, as we have done so many times before for your colleagues before you. Our professional and client focused team can help you maximise your tax returns and begin to invest wisely to make the most of your money now and throughout your career.
We recognise that the only certainty you have is uncertainty as a doctor in training. It can be hard to know how to grow your wealth when applying for new programs and moving around for PHO, Register and Fellow opportunities. We have a number of strategies to help you grow your wealth and maintain flexibility with your finances during these uncertain times in your career.
Our Wealth Health package is the foundation for your financial future
Developed specifically for doctors in training, Wealth Health is your guide to financial success. We work with you to focus on the things that matter to you most right now while keeping one eye firmly focused on your financial future.
Whatever your future plans may be, Wealth Health will help you get there.
As a doctor, you’re trained to look after our physical health from the moment we’re born right through to a ripe old age.
At Walshs we are trained to look after your financial health from the time you’re a final year student, through your internship, as registrar, fellow, consultant and into private practice. We provide expert and strategic taxation, accounting and financial planning advice to doctors through every stage of your career lifecycle.
We understand your journey because, for over 30 years, we have helped thousands of doctors progress financially as their career takes off.
Our Wealth Health package has been developed specifically for our partnership with you. It includes:
Your tax return completed and lodged by a medical accounting specialist
Access to your financial advisor for salary packaging assistance and access to premium lending loans and restructuring
Your annual financial planning health check* discussion including budget and cash flow, superannuation, personalised insurance review and asset progression check
Invitations to exclusive events and workshops

The training years are when most doctors plan to get started on asset acquisition, both in property and shares. As a fully integrated financial services firm, we draw on the expertise of all our divisions to help you with a long-term wealth-building strategy tailored to your needs.
We can help you with:
Managing ongoing costs and training obligations, balanced with lifestyle and investment decisions
