Physician compensation stats

Table of Contents

Medscape’s out with their latest physician compensation survey. And though the physician jobs with the highest income are the same as last year—Radiology, Orthopedics, Cardiology and Anesthesiology—the compensation figures as a whole have declined.

For example, the average compensation for Radiologists in last year’s survey was $350,000—and this year comes in at $315,000. Cardiologists and anesthesiologists tied last year at $325,000 for average salary, and this year come in at $314,000 and $309,000 respectively.

These compensation figures were collected from 24,126 physicians nationwide.
