Highest Paid Job-Obstetrician/Gynecologist
Salary: £39,576 and £136,065 per year
Obstetrics and gynaecology comprises the care of the pregnant woman, her unborn child and the management of diseases specific to women. Gynecologists focus even more tightly on pregnancy and childbirth.
The professions often overlap and OB/GYNs can choose to specialize in areas such as fertility, cancer, or primary care.
The common path to practicing as a physician requires 8 years of education beyond high school and 3 to 8 additional years of internship and residency, 4 years of undergraduate school, 4 years of medical school, and 3 to 8 years of internship and residency, depending on the specialty selected. A few medical schools offer combined undergraduate and medical school programs that last 6 years rather than the customary 8 years.
