Pay by Experience Level for Dermatologist

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


Dermatologists with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. At career start (within the first five years), average income sits near $196K, and the average for folks who have worked for five to 10 years is only slightly higher at $201K. Dermatologists with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $235K. Survey participants who have spent more than 20 years on the job report a predictably higher median income of $261K, demonstrating that compensation is roughly commensurate with experience in the end.
