Tom Burns, MD

After creating his own passive income, and eventual freedom, Tom is now sharing his passion with other doctors and building a community of wealth-minded physicians.

Tom decided early that passive income was the path to a more fulfilling lifestyle. With over 25 years of experience, he was building passive income before anyone thought it was necessary. Early in his career, many of his colleagues did not understand why he worked after hours to develop his investments. Doctors had been making so much money that it appeared there was no reason to focus on real estate investments. But Tom could see the early markers of economic decline within the medical economy, and he knew it wasn’t sustainable. Fast forward to today, and most physicians are looking for a “side hustle” to supplement their medical income. As one of the original Pied Pipers of passive income, Tom is on a mission to use the experience that provided his freedom to guide you on your journey to financial independence. He has spoken to thousands of fellow doctors on how they can create streams of passive income. His latest book, “Why Doctors Don’t Get Rich”, summarizes the issues physicians face, and outlines an actionable plan on how you can solve your financial burden and begin the life of your choice.

As an orthopedic surgeon, Tom understands where you are professionally, and strives to help you find the same financial freedom he did. He’s an educator and mentor by nature who wants doctors to thrive, not burn out.
Tom is a former orthopedic surgeon in Austin, Texas. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. He received sports medicine training at the prestigious Steadman Hawkins Fellowship in Vail, Colorado and he is a physician for the United States Ski Team. He has over 25 years of real estate experience, both locally and internationally, involving multiple asset classes. In addition to his real estate experience, he has co-founded, managed and sold a free-standing, full-service hospital.
