Richard’s Answer

Physician compensation varies widely based on location and specialty.

For example primary care physicians (including family practice and pediatrics) can make about $150,000-240,000 in the USA. But orthopedic surgeons average between $400,000-750,000

This is highly variable. It depends what profession you are talking about. Are you talking about doctors, nurses, med techs, medical assistants, etc.?

Hi Shakita,

It depends on the role. I caution you, the highest predictor of career satisfaction is "meaning", the least, pay. You can find the national averages at this site: O*Net. I tells you about the job duties, what kind of educational prep most peope who have the position have, what the pay is, etc. You might also find out about medical-related jobs you didn't know existed!

Danielle recommends the following next steps:

Here's the options for "doctor" https://www.onetonline.org/find/quick?s=doctor
Options for "nurse" https://www.onetonline.org/find/quick?s=nurse
Options for "medical tech" https://www.onetonline.org/find/quick?s=medical+tech
Options for "physician assistant" https://www.onetonline.org/find/quick?s=medical+tech
Options for "physical therapist" https://www.onetonline.org/find/quick?s=medical+tech
