Cardiologists have the highest average salary of medical professionals, at $353,970.
Cardiologists take home the most income compared to other medical professionals, with an average salary of $353,970.

While most are employed in physician offices (approximately 14,450 out of 18,610), the industry where they make the most money is in outpatient care centers, at an average of $366,520, which is over $10,000 more per year than the average that cardiologists make overall, according to Forbes, “Highest Paying Medical Jobs In 2022” review.

Radiologists also ranked among the top ten, earning $301,720. The top seven had average annual salaries surpassing $300,000. “Perhaps not surprisingly, these healthcare occupations tend to be specialized, though more general physicians and dentists rank among the top 50 highest paying medical jobs as well,” according to the report.

Here are the top ten:
Cardiologist - $353,970
Anesthesiologist - $331,190
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons - $311,460
Emergency Medicine physicians - $310,640
Orthopedic Surgeons, Except Pediatric - $306,220
Dermatologists - $302,740
Radiologists - $301,720
Surgeons, all others - $297,800
Obstetrician and gynecologists - $296,210
Pediatric surgeons - $290,310

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons saw the largest year-over-year pay gains, at 32.5%, from $234,990 in May 2020 to $311,460 in May 2021. Obstetricians and gynecologists also experienced high salary rises, at 23.9%, from $239,120 to $296,210.

But many of the 50 highest-paying medical jobs saw weak growth or dives in salary. The average prosthodontist (24 on the list) saw their own dip by a third (33.1%), from $214,870 to $143,730. Dentists, all other specialists (21), also saw an 8% decline, from $194,930 to $179,400; and dentists, general (22), saw a 7.6% year-over-year drop, from $180,830 to $167,160

The data was compiled from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) and isolated occupations that fall into their category, Healthcare Practitioners and Technical Occupations.
