Dermatologist Salary

Salaries for Dermatologists in the United States are generous, with average pay above six figures ($201K) per year.

Pay by Experience Level for Dermatologist

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


For many Dermatologists, extensive experience does not lead to significantly more money. Large paychecks, which sit comfortably in the six-figure range, are handed out almost immediately; professionals who have less than five years' experience report earning a median of $195K per year. Dermatologists who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $235K. Ultimately, more time spent in the workforce does seem to translate to bigger paychecks; seasoned veterans with more than 20 years of experience report a median income of $263K.
