Derm vs. Ophtho again - salary range
SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
there is already a good derm vs. ophto thread and I don't want to open up a new one as of lifestyle, diagnostic pros and cons, etc., but just focus on salary this time.
My situation is this:
I live in Europe and have a realistic chance of getting either a derm or ophtho residency in Switzerland.
I am writing my diploma thesis in derm, which would give me an advantage in that field, but my ophtho rotation was amazing.
I can imagine myself in either field. So, in the end, it comes down to one thing (as stupid as it may sound):
Who will earn more?
An ophthalmologic surgeon, specializing on either cataract or retinal surgery.
Or a dermatologic surgeon, performing MOHs and superficial cosmetic procedures.
It must be noted that on the long run I would like to move to a gulf country, such as Kuwait, Emirates or Saudi. Just from that aspect, ophtho would be a better choice, since derms is very poorly developed over there. But hey, maybe that opens unique opportunities, too?
