New York’s Highest Paying Jobs – Are They Worth It?
How can you put a price tag on critical or emergency care. When there is a crisis or life saving event, we are very luck to have some incredible medical professionals ready to act and save lives. These incredible people are at the top of their field and their pay is reflecting that.
The top of the list seems to be a job in the medical field. With an average salary of $208,000 per year, anesthesiologists are in first place. Pretty incredible but when you consider the schooling and hours of interning that it takes, is it worth it? Even the best of the best walk away with some pretty heavy school loan debt to pay back.
