  1. Thank you for your detailed response -JAG-

    There would be no problem if these specialists would be making this much money in private practice

    However, as all of this money comes from the common pot, billing disproportionately larger amounts than other specialists/generalists is essentially taking a big fat dump on them

    "We are better than every other specialty" mentality...


    In the US, specialists don't have such an insane spread in compensation. Ophthalmologists receive on average a $366K, Radiologists $419K, Cardiologists $430K and Gastroenterologists $417K. All specialties matter, and the time of some specialists is not valued disproportionately greater than the time of others

  2. Thank you for your clarification. Do you have any insight into when this realignment will happen or if it will happen at all?

    Right now these specialties are god-like (e.g. opthalmology has an amazing lifestyle and a $1mill+ salary) and many people want to pursue these specialties for that reason. I think if the salaries of these 4 are aligned to be comparable to other specialist/generalist salaries, it could be a deal-breaker for many students.
