Lesson 8: Salary Calculators
Want to know the ballpark salary you can expect for your specialty in areas you’re interested in? Salary Calculators take the guesswork—and sometimes, even the awkwardness—out of the salary issue.
A salary calculator gives much more information that merely salaries.
Knowing the numbers of physicians in or nearing the “retirement zone” helps us calculate the demand for particular specialties.
The more physicians in the zone and the fewer the residents in a particular specialty, the more in-demand a candidate with that specialty will be.
The opposite also is true: fewer physicians in the zone with a greater number of residents in that specialty, means fewer the opportunities for candidates.Go back Next lesson
