Buying a home can be a significant financial decision, especially for physicians who have unique financial situations. To help physicians plan their mortgage payments, we’ve developed the Physician Mortgage Loan Calculator. This tool simplifies the process of estimating monthly mortgage payments based on the loan amount, interest rate, and loan term.

Formula: The calculator uses the following formula to calculate the monthly mortgage payment:

�=�⋅�1−(1+�)−�*M*=1−(1+*r*)−*n**P*⋅*r*

Where:

- �
*M*is the monthly payment. - �
*P*is the loan amount. - �
*r*is the monthly interest rate (annual rate divided by 12 and converted to a decimal). - �
*n*is the total number of payments (loan term in years multiplied by 12).

How to Use:

- Enter the loan amount in the “Loan Amount” field.
- Input the annual interest rate in the “Interest Rate” field.
- Specify the loan term in years in the “Loan Term” field.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the estimated monthly payment.

Example: Suppose you are considering a physician mortgage loan of $500,000 with an annual interest rate of 3.5% and a loan term of 15 years. After entering these values and clicking “Calculate,” the tool will display the estimated monthly payment.
