According to the study CareerCast.com (The Highest Paying Jobs of 2015), the top ten highest-paying jobs included six healthcare-related vacancies. The top three are surgeons, general practitioners and psychiatrists. The average salary of surgeons is $352,220. "I wonder how salaries in this category can differ," says the editor of the service Kyle Kensing.

"Depending on the profile, the salary of some surgeons can reach almost half a million dollars."

For example, the average annual salary of orthopedic surgeons is more than $464 thousand, and cardiac surgeons specializing in invasive procedures are above $461 thousand.

The annual annual earnings of a psychiatrist on average reach $181,880. The closing three leaders of general practitioners earn about $ 180 thousand per year.

In addition, dentists (fifth place in the ranking), orthodontists (seventh place) and pharmacists (tenth place) were among the ten highest-paid professions. The annual salary of a dentist on average reaches $146,340, orthodontists earn about $129,110, pharmacists - about $120,000 a year.

But getting into the TOP medical specialties involves significant investments – both financial and temporary. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, over four years, the cost of attending medical school is $298,500 for private institutions and $226,400 for public ones.

According to Medscape.com , 41% of doctors aged 40-44 years still pay debts for medical school, for the 45-49 age category this figure is 22%, at the age of 50-54 years, 11% of doctors still have payments.

In addition to medical specialties, the rating includes such professions as an oil engineer (annual earnings - $130,050), a data analysis specialist ($124,150) and an air traffic controller ($122,340).
