Just wondering how much you guys earn in your first year out of medical school? I know we always have this notion of the US being ridiculously well-paid... Does it vary from state to state? As interns (or Pre-Registration-House-Officers, PRHO's) here in the UK we average at about £36,000 per year which (I think) works out at about $63,000 for the year. Do you guys compare? Also, (I'm interested) how much debt does the average med-head graduate with? Does it take you years and years to pay off?
