The physician compensation gap between women and men was 26 percent in 2022, with women physicians earning almost $110,000 less than their male counterparts.

Economic challenges for healthcare workers continued in 2022, as the average physician compensation fell by 2.4 percent and the gender pay gap persisted, according to a report from Doximity.

The report reflects responses from more than 190,000 US doctors over six years, with responses from 31,000 full-time physicians in 2022 alone.

While physician compensation declined by 2.4 percent overall between 2021 and 2022, changes varied in metro areas. Physicians in Oklahoma City experienced a 6.3 percent increase in compensation. Among the other nine cities with the highest increases, growth ranged from 1.1 percent to 4.6 percent.
