4/1     Doctor salaries, from a reliable source:  (
        \_ THAT'S COMMUNISM!
           \_ huh?
        \_ Across the entire US and not accounting for years experience or
           private/public practice.
           \_ Take another look.  That site also breaks this data down based
              on location, experience, and type of practice, just not on the
              op's page (it's linked from that page).
              \_ Well, duh. Where do you think I got my data to begin with?
                 However, it wasn't from that link.

3/8     Can any shrink (PhD) prescribe medication? Or do they have to
        have MD to do that?
        \_ In general, a psychiatrist can prescribe medication, but a
           psycologist cannot, because a psychiatrist's training includes an
           MD, while a psycologist's does not.  Some states have started to
           allow psycologists to prescribe medication, which blurs the

11/10   What's the best way to get medical leave (how do I find
        a doctor who is willing to help you in any way)?
        \_ Do you have a good relationship with your personal physician?
           If not, do you know any physicians as friends or family friends?
           That would be a good place to start.
           \_ Crap, no I don't. Ok, is there another way?

Answering the question, "what is the salary of a doctor" is a little tricky. While many medical students will choose to become general practitioners, others will become specialists, focusing on specific types of medical problems. While all doctors complete medical school and residency, the requirements for entering into a specialty will involve further education and training. And, just as the training requirements vary by specialty, so do doctor salaries. A family doctor salary, pediatrician salary and surgeon salary will all be quiet different, but they are all "doctor salaries." Doctor Salaries by Specialty provides several examples of different doctor salaries. We can see that the median medical doctor salary is significantly higher for anesthesiologists and surgeons. There is no question that doctor salaries tend to be high, but doctors also face high medical school and insurance costs. And, it can take many years before medical doctors are ready to establish a practice. Given the commitment that becoming a doctor entails, it's not surprising that many pre-med students have questions and concerns about doctor salaries. PayScale's salary survey of individuals who have earned a Doctor of Medicine degree shows that Los Angeles currently offers one of the highest median doctor salaries. In general, years of experience have a big impact on a medical doctor's salary. You'll see that the median family doctor salary is currently higher than many other medical doctor salaries in Canada. At the other end of the spectrum, emergency room doctor salaries are among the lowest. Doctor Salary Data for the UK shows that plastic surgeons there have higher medical doctor salaries than both family and emergency room doctors. Salary can't write you a prescription, but he can improve your salary research. Learn why asking "what is the median doctor salary" is a better question than "what are average doctor salaries" by reading the Ask Dr.
