According to them, high pay for anesthesiology is due to "inherent stress". :laugh: Someone should tell our friends at CNN that doctors are paid per procedure and not how stressful the job is(or else general surgeons and EMs will all be millionaires).
I wonder who compiled the list anyway? Did they look at radiologists, CT surgeons and OMFS? Oh well, back to my morning coffee......

Saw that list a while ago, they split up the specialties in a strange way that didn't really make any sense... probably to make the list more interesting. After all, it is a media site and not a data site.

Well, they contradicted themselves by placing Ob/gyn on the list. High stress, highest malpractice pay(in some states) and frequent lawsuits.
