Every time I read something about pediatricians, there is always something about their “low pay”. I never understood this. From research, I see that pediatrician make around 180k. Compared to other doctors, this may be low, however, to the general population this is an outstanding salary. Pharmacists, which require just as much schooling (before residency) make around 60k less then a general pediatrician. Furthermore, compared to other doctors, pediatricians work relatively normal hours and can live standard lives. Because of this, I have always been confused on why people on this website are always talking down to people interested in pediatrics. Any thoughts?
