In 2019, self-employed physicians’ in Switzerland median earned income was CHF 162000

In 2019, half of self-employed physicians earned more than CHF 162000 (median annual net income) and the other half less. Physicians performing surgery received the highest median income (CHF 266000), psychiatric specialists the lowest (CHF 108000). 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. These are some of the results from a new publication from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
