Here's an interesting tidbit from Indeed.com:
"Average Physician salaries for job postings nationwide are 51% higher than average salaries for all job postings nationwide."When you go to look at the chart, you'll see that it also includes Physician Assistant and Nurse Practitioner salaries. You can play around with this tool by clicking the box labeled, "Search Job Titles Only." You can enter job titled like "family physician" or "surgeon." You can also see what happens if you type "neurosurgeon." I think you'll see that the salary figures generated by this salary tool are grossly inaccurate.
