Medscape Physician Compensation Report: 2012

You’ll find regional differences throughout the U.S. when it comes to food, accents…and average salaries for physician jobs.

But you might be surprised to learn that it’s not a region filled with major metropolises that offers the highest mean physician salary.

According to the Medscape Physician Compensation Report: 2012 Results, it’s the North Central region (North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa and Missouri) - the same states as last year’s report - where salaries are highest.

Here’s the breakdown of mean physician compensation by region, according to the report:

  • North Central: $234,000
  • Great Lakes: $228,000
  • South Central: $228,000
  • Southeast: $226,000
  • West: $225,000
  • Northwest: $216,000
  • Mid-Atlantic: $214,000
