How much money does a doctor make?


Answer by  crisduarte (363)

I believe it depends on the type of doctor and your success rate. resident doctors earn anywhere from 50,000 on up but it also depends on who you work for.

It all depends on what kind of doctor you are talking about. But most doctors (especially surgeons) can make upwards of 150,000 dollars a year if not more.

This varies between specialties and locations. Obviously those located in large cities get paid greatest. Family practice doctors get paid an average of $147,516 compared to $347,380 for radiologists. This is likely because of the high cost of medical school ($140,000) to the lowest annual compensation. This has left a shortage of family practice doctors.

It varies a great deal. Different specialities make much more than others. For example, neurosurgeons (one of the more highly paid specialties) make much more than pediatricians (one of the specialties that pays the least). Also, doctors have expenses like student loans and malpractice insurance, which reduce their income. Most make very comfortable livings, however.

I know the make a lot of money. It is probably more than most people ever see. I think it would depend on what type of doctor you are, which would cause the amount of money you make to vary a lot. I would think that specialists would make more than general doctors.
