Hey all, We all know what the highest paying specialties are now, but I am wondering what the highest paid specialties have been *historically*, over the past 20 or 30 years lets say. Has radiology always paid so much? Has Generaly Surgery always paids so little (for the training)? Question two: what specialties to you see making the most $$$ in the next 5 to 10 years? I would guess rads will stay up there, but may have peaked by now. Same with anesthesia and the surgical subspecialties. I think FP and IM will see a big income boost since nobody wants to go into it now, thus creating a future "glut" I think the pay for PM&R may go up as the boomers age and subspecialties of PM&R become more prominent. Of course I assume neurosurgery will always make the most, but those crazy bastards deserve it! just speculations. what are your thoughts? regards.
