Just found this:

"Income Expected From Primary Care is Lagging,
Which is Affecting Career Choices
The difference between what the seniors expect to earn in primary care and non-primary care specialties
is growing rapidly, a fact which apparently is not lost on students and may be leading many
of them away from primary care careers. Physicians in non-primary care specialties in 1995 could
expect incomes about 26% higher than their primary care colleagues. By 2004, the expected difference
was 43%.
When asked to rate the influence of various factors on their specialty choice, the seniors generally
did not rate the "prestige/income potential" factor very high. However, those who planned a
non-primary-care specialty attributed a much larger influence on their choice to this factor than did
those planning a primary care specialty. This adds to the picture of students' career choices being
driven more than ever by financial considerations."

Even with a primary care salary, if you invest in real estate it doesn't matter. It's plenty in the end.
