Eighty-three percent of residents believe their compensation doesn’t reflect the number of hours they work, according to Medscape’s annual resident salary and debt report. Based on responses from more than 1,500 residents across 25 specialties, the average resident salary is $57,200 and nearly half of them reported working more than 60 hours a week. One-third of the surveyed residents would like to see their salary increase 26%-50%.

This year’s survey results show a decline in satisfaction with compensation. In 2017, 49% of women and 46% of men thought they were fairly compensated. In 2016, 55% of women and 52% of men fairly compensated, which was down from the 2015 results that showed 65% of women and 60% of men felt that way.
