About how much money does a pediatrician make in a year?
I would like to be a pediatrician and would like to know about how much money does a pediatrician make in a year?
Based on a quick google search, it looks like Pediatrician salary is determined by how specialized your field is. Here's a useful quote from mommd (a website for women in medicine):
As with any medical career, a major
determinant of salary is the level of
specialization. While the average
salary for pediatricians is around
$175,000, that of pediatric
specialists is typically higher.
Pediatricians with at least 3 years
experience who are specialized in
neurology or oncology/hematology can
typically earn up to $250,000, while
pediatric surgeons typically earn
$400,000-$500,000 a year.
