Hi all. I'd be interested in hearing "real" figures of what different physicians are making today. I know, burdened with high medical school debt, many people are shying away from Family practice, Pediatrics, or IM...but I recently read some figures in Med Economics that made me think: Many FPs in urban areas start (in a group practice) less than $100k/year. One person advocated starting a new FP at $85k/year. Is that really the norm? On the other hand, they noted that a rural FP in Wisconsin had a $120k/year offer. Other salaries I have heard (for new physicians): Internal Med (group): $135k Internal Med (acad): $120k Pediatrics (group): $110k Emergency Med (acad, wisconsin): $160k Emergency Med (acad, califor): $140k Emergency Med (private, wis): $205k Emergency Med (private, cal): $160k Orthopedics (acad): $195k Cardiology (private): $205k Corporate Law (junior associate): $135k + bonus Accountant (CPA): $80k + bonus Systems design (math PhD): $110k + options While some of these sound right, I was shocked to learn FPs and Peds regularly make under 100k (for many years!). With those primary care salaries unlikely to go up anywhere soon (there's now enough PCPs), how are they going to attract new people? Has anyone else heard real-life salary figures?
