Average Yearly Salary of a Resident

Yes!  You worked so hard to match and you got your residency spot!!! Congratulations!!! 

Here's what you've working so hard to get... the average yearly salary for residents:




  • Please keep in mind that this is before state and Federal taxes are taken out!    Welcome to adulthood!

  • It’s really peanuts when you figure in how many hours you will be working!    The bright side is… at least your being paid rather then paying!!! 

  • And most importantly, remember that what you are really working for… is the experience that will make you an amazing physician who will help others in need. 

  • The salaries tend to vary with the cost of living with large cities having a higher rate then smaller towns.

Quoting Carlos N:
In average, how much is the percentage of Federal Taxes?

Great question Carlos.
The average tax rate is 25% for single filers making between $37,451 to $90,750 in 2015 according to Bankrate.com
Welcome to America... the gov always gets it's cut.

Wow that is so not cool. Well hope at least taht you can end up at 250k once you are done with everything and at least get 6 wks paid vacation. Looks like the salaries of a really saturated market.

its criminal....the life or death nature (1 attempt or u cant get a residency which can ultimately blow 100s of thousands of dollars). i think what makes it hard as a med student is to see what life after residency is. being stuck in a classroom..all you think about is passing step 1 and the anxiety it causes. Also, passing the exam doesnt mean squat anymore, anything less than a 210 really hurts chances of a residency. oy vey...hopefully it all works out, otherwise...idk
