Hi
My attending told me that he only makes about 200K. That is the same as being a PCP. Why are salaries so low. I thought we make a million easy. Is this only in academic medicine or is this a real average salary?

Who exactly is "we?" I have serious doubts that you are currently in ophthalmology residency or beyond. If you are, no offense, but you're in for a rude awakening.

Some university physicians only make about 125K
That's right!

It's far easier to learn how to live below your means than it is to try to make more.

ok now that I have stopped wiping away the tears, I think the only way you could make a million is through Lasik + no other life or retina +no other life. Cash patients/celebrities only... :laugh:
