    Average pay for residents is about $37,000 for PGY1. It increases about $1500-2000 each year there after.

    The salaries you posted are after residency. Wouldn't it be sweet if residents made that much? :)

    There's very little variation. Some places adjust it to the cost of living, e.g. living in Boston and working as an intern, you may start at $45,000 to help off-set the cost of living.
