Philomena’s Answer

This question can be answered in different perspectives or different views. First of all considering the community that a high ranked doctor comes from, he or she will be given the accorded respect as compared to many others and this shows more at gatherings. Most of the time you are being treated well by members of community, until this Covid 19 era when some health workers were maltreated by community people which is not the best.
Looking at this from the context the working that is the hospital, it usually depends on experience, furthering education to become specialist and taking other courses, number of years practicing etc. The higher the doctor goes, there is increase in salary just like other professions. Also, there might be reduction in working hours as compared to house officers who usually do more work but not complex stuffs. Another privilege high ranked doctors usually make the final decision concerning medical procedures.

Estelle’s Answer

I would say that the biggest privilege of being a physician is one that all share: having the opportunity to care for people. Beyond this, it depends how you define "rank". Personally, the experience that I have garnered practicing medicine for over 30 years has earned me respect among my peers and colleagues. If you are talking about a hospital, then there is a hierarchy of authority that will define your rank within a hospital. The residents (new doctors) will be at the bottom of this hierarchy, working long hours and obeying the orders of the attending physician. The attending physician will supervise these residents, often working fewer hours. Then you have management positions (like a department head) in which you work with the hospital administration to ensure the hospital is capable of caring for all its patients.

This will probably depend on where they practice. Bigger cities and bigger hospitals will definitely have more perks than a small community and small town with the same titles. Everything would depend on the amount of money the hospital has.

Carmelita’s Answer

There is no ranking system to speak of for doctors. As Estelle mentioned, seniority and the connections made over the years are often what determine the opportunities that are open to you.
