    member_225 reacted to zxcccxz in Why is MD considered more prestigious than PhD?   
    I'm sorry, but in what world is an average neurosurgeon on par with a Nobel laureate? Are you aware of what it takes to win a Nobel prize? You have to make a difference in human society that will greatly impact millions of people (in many cases, all of humanity) for generations to come. You can't seriously be comparing the likes of Watson & Crick, Albert Einstein, Mother Teresa, and Martin Luther King Jr. to a random neurosurgeon....
    The one exception to this may be the Nobel peace prize which in some cases is very politically-driven, but in the context of the Nobel prize in physiology or medicine (or most Nobel prizes really), it is an achievement of gargantuan proportions.

    isn't overhead for ophthalmologists relatively high compared to other specialties as well? something like 50%...

    member_225 reacted to Thorax in Realignment of Doctor's Income 2   
    The number of doctors actually making $1 million+ is pretty limited, probably a few dozen ophthalmologists, another few dozen cardiologists, radiologists, plastic surgeons etc. 
    If you compare that to the number of people in other big industries that do the same, it pales by comparison. The number of lawyers, accountants, bankers, consultants who make $1 million is way higher and they do it at earlier ages than doctors do. Don't forget out of the 40,000 or so doctors in Ontario, perhaps 200 or so actually make over $1mil after billings, that really isn't many when you think about it. I really don't think even working an 80 hour work week for most physicians would let you make over $1mil take home.

    member_225 reacted to Edict in Only 20% of doctors in BC are netting over 300k per year?   
    You probably aren't for the most part. With that being said, the BC Blue book reports  anyone who still is registered and billing something. Essentially, a lot of people are working part time or are older and winding down their practices. That will include the 60+ crowd who are now working part time and the physicians who would rather work 20-40 hours a week. 
    A few may have billings that aren't reported in the BC blue book for some reason. For example, the thoracic and neurosurgeon's billings are not reported for some reason, I'm sure there are other cases there as well. 
    If you look solely at physicians working at least 40 hours a week and removed the physicians who have billings that aren't showing up you'll probably have something higher, but its true, physician salaries are likely overestimated. Word on the street only reports the physicians who have exceptional billings. The crazy high billings spread further and faster.

    Job market goes in cycles - right now it doesn't seem so bad. Even at its tightest, I don't think it's ever been at the point of needing to look abroad. Of course, it depends on your flexibility (are you tied to a specific location or type of position). Talking to those residents/fellows currently on the interview trail will give you the best indication. 
    If you're earlier in medical training, if you are sensible with money, you shouldn't have difficulty paying off loans, etc. Should be on par with other specialist physicians.

    At least one. There are also unemployed urologists because they want a major city. Such is the life of surgery now a days, unless you got some major connections,  the job market is tight as sheet. We’ll see again in 10 years what it is, hopefully better hah.

    member_225 got a reaction from medicine200000 in Is it worth it to switch to medicine from optometry?   
    Assuming your fiancée got into optometry school after 3 years of undergrad, she would be 24 right now.
    Scenario 1:  6 years of optometry income, with an average of 130k per year across all 6 years (if  you think even this isn't doable, then you're just trolling at this point), will be 780k of a head start in income. 
    Scenario 2: your fiancée goes to medical school and ends up doing family medicine. With an average of 210k per year, it would take her 10 years to catch up to the lost income. 
    So at 40 you'd break even as a family doc should she choose not to continue with optometry. 
    Do what you want with this information. I'm not here to convince anyone to do optometry, I couldn't care less.
