Doctors are way less into being doctors than they were a year ago, according to an annual survey conducted by Medscape. When asked if they would choose a career in medicine again, only 54 percent said yes — down from 69 percent last year.
Apparently this has something to do with lower income all-around. Not to worry, though — doctors aren't exactly struggling. According to the survey, lower-paid doctors like pediatricians and family medicine doctors are still making $156,000 and $158,000, respectively. And specialists like radiologists and orthopedic surgeons made an average of $315,000 last year.
But wait — that's 10 percent less than they made the year before. Thanks, Obama.
It's also worth noting that only 11 percent of doctors consider themselves to be "rich." Not that most people are crazy about self-identifying as wealthy.
