Hi all, I'll start by saying that yes, I fully realize and agree that choosing a path in medicine should not be a purely or primarily income-driven decision. Please no replies saying that if this is what's important to me I shouldn't be a physician at all, etc. etc. Thanks That said, as I'm rounding out 3rd year of ENT residency and thinking about what specialty to choose, I'm having a ton of trouble finding any reliable information on earning potential for the various sub-fields and for academic hospital vs. private practice settings. Just for my information and to keep in the back of my mind, I'd SO appreciate it if anyone could provide data points on income trajectory for Facial Plastics, Rhinology, and Neurotology (these are the 3 I'm considering). I'm planning to do a fellowship, get my start as an attending at an academic medical center, and later transition to private practice. Also I'll likely reside in either Boston or NYC (or surrounding areas like Westchester County), since I know that geography does have an impact here. Any data points, insight, or context you could provide would be very much appreciated! Thank you!!
