Remuneration of doctors (general practitioners and specialists)

The remuneration of doctors is to a certain extent related to the overall level of economic development of a given country, but there are nevertheless significant variations in their remuneration compared with the average wage in each country. The structure of remuneration for different categories of doctors also has an impact on the relative financial attractiveness of different medical specialties. In many countries, governments influence the level and structure of physician remuneration directly as a key employer of physicians or as a purchaser of services, or through regulating their fees.
