Apart from being noble in the public’s eye, the medical profession also comes with a lot of perks that are deemed reasonable in accordance to the weight of responsibilities that come with it.
Medical doctors are some of the highest paid professionals in the world, and undeniably, that does make the profession even more attractive, though not necessarily a primary incentive.
On that note, let’s take a closer look at how Philippine doctor salaries fare against doctors from other Southeast Asian countries:
Philippines’ residents in public hospitals can get as much as PHP 20,000-25,000 (USD 402 – 503) per month, plus bonuses that are given out to all government employees.
There has been an internal debate over the misdistribution of doctors in the country. Doctors who choose to practice in the province have a good thriving practice and make better money. They charge considerably less than in major cities, but they have more patients due to the scarcity of doctors in the region.
