Modern Healthcare

Women represent 1 of 3 physicians and surgeons but they earn only 69 cents for every dollar their male colleagues earn. Male physicians made $202,533 on average in 2013, while female doctors had a median income of $140,036 that year, according to new national data.

Only a few jobs in the financial sector and a few other occupational areas had a higher income difference between men and women than do physicians, reported the latest income data released Monday by the U.S. Census Bureau.
