Income of self-employed physicians in 2019

In 2019, half of self-employed physicians earned more than CHF 162 000 (median annual net income) and the other half less. Physicians performing surgery received the highest median income (CHF 266 000), psychiatric specialists the lowest (CHF 108 000). Despite taking into account key explanatory factors, such as the speciality or volume of work, a male physician’s income in 2019 was on average 25% higher than that of a female physician.
