by Les Masterson
The Medscape report said male primary care physicians earn an average of $239,000 annually, while women on average earn $203,000. That’s a 2% increase in the wage gap since last year. The gap is even worse for specialists. Male specialists earn $358,000 while female specialists receive $263,000, which is a 36% gap.
The report echoed concerns about the gender pay gap raised in other recent studies.
