    Al of the job postings I've seen start 400 to 600k.. how hard are these guys working to make this much money?!! some listed 1 mill potential. I was under the impression majority of the week is spent doing office visits and not surgery. I will have my rotation soon so I guess I will find out more..

    I figured I'd kick off the trite-ole 'money thread in the surgery forums' with a haiku:

    These threads are useless,
    You want some flames and hearsay?
    Ask about money

    Make sure you ask immediately upon arrival. Bluntness is appreciated in urology.

    i think most of those salary advertisements are guaranteed 1ist year salary, after that its based on productivity. I think its mostly used a selling point. From what i hear, most average around 350-400k.

    This is totally hearsay but my roommate in college told me that this urologist father made around 375k a year.

    I think very realistic to expect 350K+

    Isn't $350,000 the starting salary for a first year urology resident?
