At Government hospitals, they don't make much, about 30,000 Baht/mo, but they always have outside gigs, clinics, etc., and do very well in spite of low salaries. At private hospitals they make much more.

I ask my physiotherapist what he made about 3 years ago. He was a recent graduate first year working and his salary was 500,000 a year.

I am now retired, but when I worked as a "locum" anaesthetist at Bumrungrad and others (private) I was on just over 10,000 baht per DAY. But I had to pay all my flight expenses and my agency cut and my hotel etc. It was not as profitable as it sounds but it was extremely agreeable work and, of course, instigated my addiction to Thailand. I will never regret this.

May be that is why the doctors sometimes so unnecessary work, or rush you do things even if they are unethical in west to make extra money

That's pretty shocking to me. I know that doctor's salaries are more reasonable here, but I still didn't think it would be that low. Here's my question...if even the doctors don't make an outrageous amount of money, what do all the filthy rich Thais do for work? :)

Unethical? Come on my friend.

Thai doctors are excellent and, like the profession everywhere it seems, are over-worked. There is quite a bit of "moon-lighting" because the pay is not great and they are often young family men. My position was different in as much as I was a much needed fill-in for holidays, sickness etc. However, back to the original post: there are all levels of doctors from consultants to your average general practitioner as we all know. It is therefore impossible to answer the opening post with any accuracy.

Even for Thailand I'm surprised how low the salaries are. I have met a few excellent doctors in Thailand but most seemed subpar, not sure if it's correlated to salary but it seems like it has to be.

It depends on whether you work in the public sector or a private hospital.

For example, public hospital range 20,000 to 30,000pm. Plus overtime in the OP say 1 or 2 evenings and maybe Satuday might add another 20,000 to 30,000 pm. Then on thop of that depending on experience and expertise there may be some extra income earned from pharmacuitical manufacturers for various services which could bring in a further amount of money a possible range 10,000 to 50,000 per month.

As for a private hospitals such as BNH or Bumringrad your monthly pay packet could be in the order of say 60,000 to 160,000 again depending on hours worked , experience and skills and of course seniorority. Plus some private clinic work on top, the average private sector medico could earn between 2 to 3 million baht per annum.

Hope this helps.
