Pre-Medical Program - Career Outcomes

The rewards of being a doctor, dentist, veterinarian, optometrist or podiatrist include the chance to make a difference in the lives of people and in your community. The appreciation and esteem that come from making a difference can be enormous and deeply gratifying. The continued expansion of the healthcare industry and advances in biomedical science will provide ample opportunities for rewarding medical careers in the decades to come.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Wages of physicians and surgeons are among the highest of all occupations. According to the Medical Group Management Association's Physician Compensation and Production Survey, median total compensation for physicians varied by their type of practice. In 2015, physicians practicing primary care received total median annual compensation of $251,578, and physicians practicing in medical specialties received total median annual compensation of $425,509.”*
