Remuneration of doctors (general practitioners and specialists)
Abstract:Remuneration levels are among the factors affecting the attractiveness of different medical professions. They also affect health spending. Gathering comparable data on the remuneration of doctors is difficult, however, because countries collect data based on different sources covering different categories of physicians, and often not including all income sources (see the box on "Definition and deviations" below). Hence, the data should be interpreted with caution.
