    Article - En anglais

    Comparisons of the incomes of physicians and other professional groups have received less attention.


    We used standard financial techniques to determine the return on educational investment over a working lifetime for five groups of professionals: primary care physicians, specialist physicians, dentists, attorneys, and graduates of business schools.
