The Average U.S. Doctor Makes $350,000 a Year

From a Washington Post analysis by Andrew Van Dam headlined “The average doctor in the U.S. makes $350,000 a year. Why?”:

The average U.S. physician earns $350,000 a year. Top doctors pull in 10 times that.

When those simple data points were first presented in 2020, a small subset of physicians came unglued on the microblogging site formerly known as Twitter, slinging personal insults and at least one deeply unflattering photo illustration of an economist.
