APPLYING FOR MEDICINE
Asked by Aysha

Is it true the graduates in medicine start on a very low salary? Why is this?

Graduate salaries from newly-qualified foundation doctors vary depending on where you choose to apply (location) and also the types of jobs you may be allocated in your first two years as a foundation programme doctor. For example, foundation doctors in London hospitals usually earn higher salaries than doctors outside of London, usually because of higher entry requirements and tougher competition for a smaller number of places. Additionally, as a foundation doctor, you are required to rank preferred jobs, such as A&E or cardiology, which each specialty offering different salaries. On average, a newly qualified doctor can expect to earn between £27-32,000 (pre-tax) in your first year after graduation.
