10 cities where female physicians are paid the highest


The physician gender wage gap still exists — and remains significant.

The physician gender wage gap still exists — and remains significant

According to an October report from Doximity, the wage gap between male and female physicians is 28% in 2020. That’s a $116,000 difference.

This year’s data found that the wage gap between male and female physicians was 28%, with male doctors earning over $116,000 more annually than their female counterparts.

This is a change from the 2019 study, in which the gender pay gap had narrowed to 25.2%. The authors blame COVID-19 for slowing progress on equalizing pay between genders.

“This trend has been found in other industry sectors, wherein the economic dislocations resulting from COVID-19 seems to have slowed progress in narrowing the wage gap,” the Doximity study reads.

Still, there are cities where women physicians are paid better. Here is a list of cities, compiled by Doximity, where female physicians enjoy the highest average salary.
