Tim Ulbrich graduated from the Ohio Northern University Doctor of Pharmacy program — which he decided on straight out of high school at age 18 — with $200,000 in student loan debt. After three years of Tim and his wife being on the Standard Repayment Plan and feeling like they were living paycheck to paycheck, they began aggressively paying back on the loans and were able to pay off the last of the debt in the fall of 2015.  

Now Tim is a clinical professor of pharmacy and program director for the master’s program in Health-System Pharmacy Administration at Ohio State University. On top of that, he founded the Your Financial Pharmacist blog, co-hosts the Your Financial Pharmacist podcast and co-wrote the book “Seven Figure Pharmacist,” all of which are geared toward helping pharmacists realize their financial goals and achieve the lifestyles they want.
