How much money do anesthesiologists make outside the United States? A site called Salary Voice has the answer. At least for English speaking countries. Just for reference, Medscape's Physician Compensation report for 2016 says that anesthesiologists in the U.S. earned about $360,000 in their latest survey. We ranked number seven among all physicians behind highly paid (overpaid?) fields like dermatology and gastroenterology.
According to Salary Voice, anesthesiologists in the U.K. can expect after one year of service to make £199,828 or about $289,000. After ten years, British anesthesiologists will probably make in excess of £234,265 or $338,000.
In Canada, anesthesiologists' salaries range from 95,094 CAD to 171,258 CAD or $74,000 to $133,000. Australian anesthesiologists earn between AUD$100,000 to AUD$197,527 or $74,000 to $145,000.
Seems like being an anesthesiologist in the U.K. is the way to go. Their salaries are similar to American anesthesiologists without having to deal with all the medical malpractice liabilities that pervasively overhangs everything we do. Plus you get to speak with the impeccably proper and respected British accent.
