Here Is What Every Specialty Made In 2014 Compared To 2013

Orthopedic surgeons, cardiologists, and urologists reported higher salaries than all other specialties in American healthcare during 2014.

The data came from an analysis performed by the Dallas-based Medicus Firm, the second largest physician recruitment firm in the nation (trailing only Irving’s Merritt Hawkins). It shows a positive uptick for nearly all specialties: Only general surgeons reported making less money in 2014 than 2013 ($349,000 to $353,000).

Orthopedic surgeons said they made $499,000 in 2014, up from $485,000 in 2013. Cardiologists came in second and reported an even larger jump: $443,000 compared to $421,000. The survey was culled from responses by 2,685 providers who practiced within 21 specialties in 47 states.
