Based on BuckheadFMV research, thousands of physicians in the United States individually earn more than $1 million each year. BuckheadFMV studied non-profit data for 745 of these top-tier physicians. The study shows that a top-tier physician is likely to be a surgical specialist and highly accomplished in his or her field. The study also shows that these physicians work in hundreds of different healthcare organizations and are fairly well dispersed across the country. For the large majority of top-tier physicians, annual compensation ranges between $1 million and $2 million.
