Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many but not all Medical Physicists, a key factor in salary decisions is experience; more experience generally yields higher pay. Those just starting out earn a more-than-comfortable six-figure sum, bringing in $102K annually. Salary comes to $162K after 10 to 20 years. Once they've gotten two decades of experience under their belts, Medical Physicists encounter slower salary growth; at this point, they earn $177K annually. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 23 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 6 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than 10. A majority of the workforce has between one and nine years of experience.
