Being a physician is the fifth best overall job in the country, according to a U.S. News & World report ranking the 100 best jobs. This ranking was based on several factors, including unemployment rate, 10-year growth volume, future job prospects, work-life balance, and median salary.

According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary of physicians in 2019 was $206,500. One-quarter of physicians earned $208,000 or more that year.

The best-paying city for physicians is Janesville, Wisconsin, where physicians earned a mean salary of $284,720. That was followed by Laredo, Texas ($282,730); Salinas, California ($282,640); Pittsfield, Massachusetts ($279,900); and Ocean City, New Jersey ($279,790).

The states with the highest mean physician salaries were Alaska ($258,550), New Hampshire ($257,220), Maine ($251,930), Montana ($247,720), and Wisconsin ($246,060).
