Doctor's Average Take Home Pay: $27.72 an Hour

Article

A video making waves online this week illustrates how overhead costs and other expenses whittle down the average physician's take home pay to $27.72 an hour -- that's less than what many high-school teachers make.

A video making waves online this week is a clip from “The Vanishing Oath,” a film by Ryan Flesher, MD, that illustrates how overhead costs, malpractice insurance and other expenses slash physician’s take home pay from the national average of $146,000 a year to just $27.72 an hour ... or roughly $58,000 a year.

That's less than what many high-school teachers make.
