    1. The Netherlands

    The Netherlands is a doctor’s dream workplace offering high salaries, great working conditions, shorter hours, and plenty of holidays. The amazing healthcare system ensures everyone has a family doctor, and waits are unheard of; it is no wonder doctors are more than happy to work here. As for pay, the average yearly compensation for specialists is $253,000 while general practitioners make roughly $117,000. This country remains one of the top countries to be a doctor year after year.


    2. Australia

    The land Down Under comes in at number two in terms of highest paying doctors with specialists making roughly $247,000 and general practitioners making $91,000. A lot of UK doctors flock here due to better working conditions in hospitals and the better support systems that are offered. Australian staffing levels are higher than most countries and there is a big focus on teaching and education. Doctors will find part of their working hours devoted solely to learning new techniques and teaching others.


    3. United States

    The USA comes in at number three, much to the surprise of many who think these doctors make the most. A specialist can expect to make $230,000 a year while a general practitioner makes roughly $161,000. Unfortunately, this country is expected to have a significant shortage of doctors in the next 15 years due to higher practice costs and lower insurance reimbursement rates. Doctors here also worry about being sued for malpractice and the cost of malpractice insurance is skyrocketing.


    4. Canada

    Canada arrives on this list with specialists earning an average of $161,000 a year while general practitioners earn $107,000 a year. Canada struggles with many of its doctors going to the USA to practice because of higher wages and faces a doctor shortage. This means many doctors are faced with high amounts of patients and often frustrated patients because of wait times.


    5. United Kingdom

    UK doctors, although often hop over to Australia to work, make a salary worth sticking around for. Unfortunately in the UK, doctors are often overworked and understaffed in hospitals. Specialists here can expect to make a yearly salary of $150,000 while general practitioners will see $118,000. The UK is one of the countries on this list that offers the greatest amount of financial support to its medical students.


    After years of medical school and student loans to pay off, is being a doctor worth it? Looking at these first-rate salaries in some of the best places to live in the world, it seems so. Where would you want to call home if you decided to go into medicine?
