Do you get paid as a medical resident?

The short answer is yes, according to the AMA, the average salary for a first-year resident is $63,400 per year in the U.S. as of 2021 and is determined by training year and the hospital, clinic, or outpatient office.


For example, all first-year residents are paid the same as are all fifth-year residents, however surgical specialties typically pay more.

 

What is a medical residency?

Post-Graduate Training or Residency usually takes place just after graduating medical school where you earn your M.D., D.O., or other medical credential and begin working as a physician in a hospital or private practice under the eye of an attending physician and may last up to 7 years depending on your specialty.

 

How many hours do resident doctors work?

According to this Wikipedia article, medical residents can expect to work 40-80 hours per week and sometimes more, with about 40% of that time doing paperwork.
