Physician Salaries are on the Up!


Although compensation stagnated in the first year of the pandemic, doctors saw their salaries rebound by 7% by the end of last year, according to Medscape’s Physician Compensation Report released last week. The report includes financial details from about 13,000 physicians across 29 specialties and found primary care doctors earned $260,000 on average while specialists average $368,000. Of those specialties surveyed, plastic surgery averaged the highest compensation at $576,000 while public health and preventative medicine ranked lowest at $243,000.
