    Suppose a DO wanted a faculty position as a teacher at a med school. What is the maximum he could possibly make in such a position? Would clinical work experience demand a higher teaching salary for him?

    people who usually teach..also see patients on the side..so the doctor usually controlls how much he/she makes..i think..if they are a money *****..they'll try to see tons of patients on the side..etc...correct me if im wrong

    What area of the country and what specialty? Is this faculty position associated w/ a school, residency program, or both? What are the qualifications of this DO (previous academic experience, Certs, Publications)? What can this DO bring to the table? Is this DO part of the 'good ole boy network'?

    You see it is not that easy. To get a better idea of the avg. look in the back of NEJM at their job postings.
