I'm sure this has been asked - but what about docs who teach at a medical school AND practice? I'm thinking I might do that for a bit - teach clincal medicine while practicing.

It seems that some of them are inflated. Allergy and Rheumatology in the Midwest seem quite high.

yeah, I thought the same thing when I was looking at them this morning. Several others seem to be very high also.

Since this is salary survey, I have a feeling that 1) high wage earners are more likely to report, and 2) high wage earners are pulling up the mean

- they should give us the median too.

Take the results with a grain of salt... nevertheless, it shows an idea of what each specialty makes.

Greater supply of radiologists = less you have to pay. Supply and demand, I would guess. That may explain some of the other variations as well (higher allergy/rheumatology pay in the midwest).

You'll find that with nearly every medical specialty you'll make less on the coasts and more in the midwest and south. It is supply and demand. More people want to live on the West coast and in the big cities on the East coast (Boston, New York). You'll also usually make more in a smaller city rather than a larger one and as a double bonus the cost of living is usually much less in a smaller town as well as in the Midwest and South.

I think the JacksonHarris survery may be a little high because it is gross pay, while the other surveys were net.

Right?

i believe all these surveys report earnings which are net of expenses, like insurance but gross of taxes.

when you are an academic physician you'll make less, but probably see more rare diseases.

If that's true, then I am American by birth, but Southern by the Grace of God.
