An exchange traded fund (ETF) can be a good investment option for any physician-investor. But discovering the right ETF for you may be difficult. Fortunately, there are several useful resources out there for you to use, including the following:

•Morningstar.com - A comprehensive Web site containing a wealth of information, articles, and basic tutorials, Morningstar's site is a leading provider of financial information.

•Amex.com - Although a little difficult to navigate, amex.com is a decent Web site with good information from the American Stock Exchange.

•Nasdaq.com - The tech exchange's Web site is similar to Amex.com in terms of information, but simpler to navigate.

•iShares.com - A virtual Bible of ETF information, containing a plethora of information for ETF newcomers and veterans alike, with nearly everything a physician-investor would need to know about the different types of funds.
