Does a physician earn more than a trader?
Hard to say. Really bad physicians and really bad traders don’t make much. Really good ones make a lot!
Insurance companies are only willing to pay a MAX AMOUNT for surgery or treatment options and one can only touch so many patients in a day/week/month, so I feel like physicians have limited max earnings potential.
Physicians that own multiple surgery centers
can make a whole lot, but they are taking financial risks like traders would. Traders have unlimited trading potential, but they are also taking financial risks.
