Medical News today reports that some doctors who specialize in medical procedures, such as surgery and radiotherapy, are not being compensated fairly by employers.
In a study of the data from over 300,000 employers in the US, researchers found that the number of doctors who earned more than $200,000 annually in 2015 was twice as high in the healthcare industry as the number who earned less than $20,000.
That means that over a third of medical jobs paid less than the national average.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of the mismatch between doctors who earn money and those who aren’t.
In 2012, for instance, the Department of Labor released data showing that just 12 percent of doctors earned more per year than their peers.
Meanwhile, the average annual salary for anesthesiologists was $155,000 in 2016, but that figure rose to $185,000 by 2021.
The gap between the two figures, however, isn’t being filled by doctors who aren.
The problem, according to the study, is that they’re not being paid enough.
It also reports that while the number that earn more than they should have is smaller than it should be, the gap is even larger for those who don’t earn more.
Medical researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, and the University at Buffalo conducted the study using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the National Center for Health Statistics, and employers that reported salaries.
The researchers analyzed salaries for 5,000 doctors across five medical specialties.
For their study, the researchers looked at salaries reported to the employers for their specialty and also calculated compensation that the doctors were paid on average.
That data is broken down by the specialty of the doctor and their pay ranges.
The study also looked at the average pay for doctors who were paid $100,000, $125,000 and $140,000 respectively.
The researchers found a significant discrepancy between how doctors were being paid in different specialties, particularly with respect to surgery and medical radiotherapy.
Doctors in surgery, for example, earned more in 2015 than surgeons in other fields, and that gap narrowed the more medical work a doctor did.
However, a doctor who worked in a radiotherapy clinic in the radiotherapy industry earned a significantly higher salary than a radiotherapist in the private sector.
Doctors who worked with patients who were in intensive care units earned the highest pay in 2015, but the gap between that pay range and that of radiotherapists narrowed dramatically.
Finally, the study looked at compensation for doctors in other medical specializations, including pediatric medicine and obstetrics and gynecology.
This was the same category as surgery, but it found that doctors in the pediatric and obstetric specialties were paid less on average than the doctors in non-specialty fields.
“This is not a situation where we have an oversupply of doctors,” said study co-author Michael Katz, a professor of economics at the University and director of the UC Berkeley Center for Economic Policy Research.
“We have a shortage of physicians.”
In addition to this finding, the survey also looked for pay gaps by specialty, as well as between doctors and their patients.
According to the report, about 80 percent of the pay gaps were found in pediatric medicine, where doctors earn more and patients are more likely to be covered by Medicaid.
In addition, there were pay gaps in obstetric and gynecolgy.
There were also pay gaps for the other specialties listed in the report.
What can you do?
As a doctor, you can help your peers get ahead.
As the report points out, the vast majority of healthcare professionals are not making a career change to earn more money.
They are instead focusing on their health and safety.
That’s one of the things that makes medical care so appealing.
It offers a steady paycheck while giving you the ability to focus on your patients, your profession, and your health.
As an added bonus, you’re not required to take on new patients as you may have to, as a nurse, an obstetrician, an ophthalmologist, or a physician.
You don’t have to worry about whether you have enough cash to pay your bills.
Instead, you are able to take a risk on patients and be able to offer your expertise without fear of a pay cut.
That may seem like a good thing, but pay gaps can also lead to poor patient outcomes.
If you are a physician, it’s time to take your foot off the gas.
The survey also found that over 80 percent said they would like to be able pay more, but they also said that the healthcare system is not being flexible enough.
The biggest reason cited for that is that some providers are working overtime and are working longer hours than they are supposed to.
As a result, the healthcare systems are not adequately compensating for the hours they work.
To fix this, the report
