Pay by Experience Level for Obstetrician / Gynecologist

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


More years of relevant experience do not necessarily translate to higher paychecks. Even the relatively untried can take home bulky six-figure salaries; employees who have worked for fewer than five years report earning $189K on average. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $246K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $250K.
