This cartoon is based on data from the 2015 Medscape Physician Compensation Report. Dermatology is on one end, internal medicine on the other. The other specialties in between. Doesn’t seem to be a trend between the cognitive and procedural specialities, which is a bit surprising. You’d think the latter would skew towards the “happiness” side.
Do you agree?
