5. Physi­cians and sur­geons

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Un­em­ploy­ment rate, 2014: 0.4% (tied-5th high­est) Me­dian an­nual pay, 2012: Greater than $187,200 Em­ploy­ment change, 2012-2022: 17.8%

Less than 0.5% of physi­cians and sur­geons were un­em­ployed last year, a lower rate than for the vast ma­jor­ity of oc­cu­pa­tions.

The BLS also fore­casts the num­ber of physi­cians and sur­geons to grow by 17.8% by 2022, one of the faster growth rates re­viewed. The large and ag­ing baby boomer pop­u­la­tion partly ex­plains this growth trend. The re­quire­ments for physi­cians and sur­geons typ­i­cally in­clude ed­u­ca­tion and train­ing that span more than a decade and that can be very de­mand­ing. Physi­cians and sur­geons ex­am­ine, coun­sel, and per­form pro­ce­dures on pa­tients with phys­i­cal in­juries and dis­eases. Those em­ployed in the oc­cu­pa­tion are also well com­pen­sated, with a me­dian pay of more than $187,000 in 2012, one of the high­est earn­ings.
