    Medscape 2018 report shows a drop in neurology compensation from 249k in 2017 to 244k. That's a 2% drop, not accounting for inflation.

    At least this year we won't have the dubious distinction of being lowest on the "I would choose medicine again" question. That wasn't a very good look to people who saw it without realizing how wildly those answers vary year to year.

    But as a Neurologist you can easily train in critical care - they make good $$

    Don't neuro specialists earn more than general neurologists?

    What percentage of practicing general neurologists are captured by the Medscape poll? What is the standard error of their reported average compensation? Is neurology compensation normally distributed? What is the kurtosis of the distribution? What is the likelihood that the difference between 2017 and 2018 represents a statistically significant result? The questions go on from there.

    Without these data, the difference you mention between these results is meaningless. Truly. Meaningless.

    I believe that of all the doctors who reported their information for this survey, only 3% were neurologists. That's not the greatest sample size and I'm a 2% swing in any direction is not blowing my mind. This data is much more useful for the IM and FM docs who made up a majority of the respondents

    Through AAMC they have specialty info in their 'careers in medicine' and they cite MGMA data at a median of 305 for neuro 1-2 years out of residency. Isn't the consensus that MGMA is closer to the truth than medscape? Lowly M1 so not 100% sure

    A much higher proportion of neurologist go into academia - so their salary will be much lower than private practice neurologist.

    A PP neurologist makes on par with Anesthesiologist but with much better job market and security.
