Oncologists in Top 10 of High-Earning Specialties

 Blogger's Note: response rate was low which may scew results (averages); ASCO report 2008: nearly 10,500 oncologists in the U.S. (as at 2005)

Oncologists in Top 10 of High-Earning Specialties

".... With an average annual compensation of $295,000, oncologists were number 7 of 25 medical specialties surveyed."

"The report compiles the results from an online survey of 24,216 American physicians conducted in February 2012. Oncologists made up 2% of all respondents (n = 433)."

"These responses were recorded in February 2012, before the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) issued its recommendation on 5 cancer practices that must stop, which include cutting down on expensive imagining tests in cancer patients. It will be interesting to look at the responses to this question next year to see if the ASCO recommendation has had any effect on oncologists' attitudes about testing."
