    Until now I was under the assumtion that DO salaries are exactly the same as MD salaries, Is this true or not?

    Is there web site where we could confirm this, as is the case with MD salaries?

    thanks

    It is true, they are the same. On what basis would they be different? If you look on page 190 of the USNWR graduate school guide, median salaries for DO's is listed at $160,000, same as MD's.
     
  4. It definitely is true. Last summer at my internship I had access to some proprietary material that listed physician salaries by every conceivable breakdown - experience, specialty, geographic location, payer mix, etc. MD/DO salaries were one and the same.

    Drusso,

    Thanks for the web site, but that lists MD salaries for 1997.
    Is there one specific for DO's only.
