Your earning potential as a physician will depend on multiple factors, such as location, specialty, type of facility and patient demand. The median yearly salary for physicians across the board is $187,200. A few of the most populous types of physicians can expect median earnings to be:
• $170,000 for Pediatricians
• $184,00 for Family & General Practitioners
• $187,300+ for Surgeons, Internists and Immunologists
So if you were to become disabled for 82 months (the average amount of time), you could expect to lose $1,279,200 in income while disabled. How will you replace a figure that large?
