It's from the:

2007 Daniel Stern & Associates Emergency Medicine Salary Survey

The numbers posted above are the total compensation, the base salaries are reported to be about 15-55k less. I don't think they are "way too high," but it's based on just 1078 respondents, 354 of which are ED directors, so it may be skewed towards the high end assuming ED directors make more money. I tried posting a copy of the survey results someone sent me, but it's too large to fit on SDN. I suppose I can email it to those interested if you PM me.

For what it's worth, I'm in my first year out in an independent multi-hospital group. We pay ourselves as "employees" of the group for tax purposes. The numbers to the far right are pretty accurate. A little low actually.
The money is there in EM. There are good deals and better deals. Regardless you will do well in EM.

The military really needs to raise its rates. From what I hear, the physician pay scale has not been changed in over a decade.

It has increased somewhat, but not nearly as quickly as the deployments. The funny thing about it is no one in the military wants to hear you whine about it since most military personnel are paid even less than the military doctors.

boo freaking hoo. Most of the world's population is paid less than doctors. That doesn't mean that physicians should get the shaft in the military.
