1. New grad here, all my offers were in the $50k range in a suburban setting. I’m currently working at an office in that range with a commission structure in place and should be closer to $100k by this time next year. It’s hard to give a range because your salary directly correlates with your work ethic. I know docs who are happy with $50k/year, I know docs who are struggling to live on $100k/year. Depends on your level of debt, COL in your area, and how hard you work for it.
For extra perspective, my student loans after school were $180k.
2. In my first year in practice (1st actual year was overseas), I took a job in an all cash clinic. I think my salary was 42.5 plus bonus, so around 50 to 55k. This brought me up to a limit of about 80k after 5 years and then it wasn’t sustainable. I then relocated from CO to FL for 2 years at about 90k. Now nearly 12 years in I’m in a great insurance state (AK). Given I love the outdoors and winter I find it a ideal fit for me. The sky is the limit up here but I’m doing 4 days a week and around 250k. I work in a practice with a 45% split in one base. Meaning I keep 45% of what services I provide (or refer for). I would 100% talk/shadow local docs in your area. I nearly got out of the field a few years ago due to 70+ hour weeks and not a ton to show for it.
3. As a new grad, an associate position will pay roughly 50-55K per year. Your student loans will likely be 200-250K.
4. My first job was $24k because I was breathing life into a shit practice. Second job was $65k. Both were based on collections. Started my own practice at year 3 when I was making $85k. Learn the ropes and go out on your own. $370k in student debt.
5. This is a super super variable question. Unsuccessful or beginning chiropractors, and there are many, might only take home 30-40k a year. Successful Chiros, especially who own their own office can easily make 100k+. I think I’ll end up around 275-300k this year, but it’s due to having a busy office with lots of different types of associates.
6. First year 60k. 3rd year 70k. Dallas texas
7. I started at 50k a year plus commission. Made total of 60, 70, 79k my first three years. Made $240k my first year opening my own practice. Then significantly higher every year over the past 4 years. This year is on track for 490k. Open your own practice. Bottom line. Keep overhead low
8. According to BLS, the 10th percentile wage is $37,400/yr, median is $75,000/yr, and 90th percentile is $128,750/yr.
As a new grad you should expect to start closer to the lower end with room for growth.
This is the US national stats, your geographic area may differ.
9. 2020 i made $500 a week… now in 2022 i make 2k a week.
10. First year 95k, but not expecting super fast growth. At the joint
11. I started at 40k per year salary, then moved to a new job where I made a % and went from about 50 to 70 k in two years, then I opened my own spot and went from about 80k my first year to 4 years in making about $275k take home (office brings in about $800k before expenses)
12. $65k first year to $105k by the 3rd year. Associate position based on a 31-33% take.
13. 3 different offers for $85k with full benefits and a bonus structure as a new grad in NYC this year.\
14. I work for myself and by myself (no staff). I work 20 patient hours a week on average around my kids’ schedule, another 5-10 paperwork. I’m a preferred provider for most insurance, no medicare, about half my practice is cash-private pay. My overhead is $1500-$2000 a month. Last year I net $50,000, the year before $70,000
15. I work Mon – Thurs for a total of 28 hours. Last year I paid myself approximately 140k, and I am anticipating that being higher this year. This is in the midwest where cost of living is fairly low, too. I imagine if you were on the coasts you would have more population to pull from, and also could charge higher rates easier.
