Medical professionals in California are earning more than $160 million per year, and they’re making that money through an increased share of their workforces’ salary, according to a report released Monday by the California Office of Statewide Health.
The median physician’s salary in the state is $162,000, and it’s up 25% over last year.
But that salary is up 15% from 2015, and the median salary for doctors in California increased to $170,000 in 2017.
That is a 20% increase from 2015.
The report said the median medical professional’s salary has been on the rise, with the average salary increasing nearly 25% from 2013 to 2017.
This year, the average physician’s compensation has increased by more than 20%.
The report noted that California’s state and local governments and the Department of Public Health have all made significant increases to the salaries of medical professionals in the last several years.
The state is also seeing a growing share of that increase come from the federal government.
California has experienced a significant increase in the number of medical providers who are providing care in California since the state began requiring them to report their compensation to the state in 2016.
That number has grown from 13 to 19.
The new report shows the state has added more than 50,000 new physicians since 2020.
The report noted there were 8,919 total physician positions in the Golden State in 2017, up from 7,566 in 2016, with nearly 1,000 more new positions being added each day.
