Last month, we asked for the average annual income for endocrinologists.
the answer: $236,000 (USD).
This ranks lower than just about every other medical specialty and is only slightly higher than the average earnings for primary care physicians. The lack of billable “procedures” is often cited as a reason for the relatively low pay. Clearly, most endocrinologists are in it because of their passion for treating hormonal conditions such as diabetes, rather than big bucks. Congratulations to Craig Sharpe (T1D x 44 years) of Melbourne, Australia, for guesstimating the correct answer!

What was the name of this organization?
