The average salary in and around Atlanta is about $200,000.00. As another mentioned it can vary greatly from region to region. Also, it's not unusual for very rural locations to pay a great deal, because the location may not be a desirable place to live and employers have difficulty recruiting physicians.
I should also mention that obstetricians working full time more often than not work long hours, far more hours than 40/week, and a lot of all-nighters. It takes 12 years after high school graduation (4 years undergrad, 4 years medical school, 4 years residency) to complete the training, meaning you will be a minimum of 30 years old when finished. Most importantly though, find something you love, because all that won't matter much if you really enjoy it.
