By Matthew RuckerPublished October 04, 2018 04:15:42The United States has the second-highest share of medical professionals in the world at 10 percent, after the UK, but the US has only a small share of cancer specialists who earn bonuses.
The US, along with Germany, has the most cancer specialists with 4.5 percent of the global workforce.
The World Health Organization, which tracks salaries and bonuses in the medical field, has a system called the Payer International Medical Salary Index (PIMSI) that ranks countries based on the amount of medical work a country performs.
The United Kingdom, which has the highest PIMSI score, has more than $4 billion of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and other medical professionals who are paid more than the average of the other countries, according to data from the World Health Association.
Germany, which ranks in the top 15 percent of medical salaries in the United States, has some of the highest medical salaries for cancer specialists.
The German government spends more than 2 percent of GDP on cancer care.
Germany has some very high PIMSOI scores, including an average of $9,000 per doctor, according the United Nations’ International Federation of Medical Research (IFMR).
The top five highest PimSOI countries are: Japan, United States (9.2 percent), Germany, Spain, Canada and France.
Japan has the best PIMSI score with an average salary of $16,200, followed by Spain with $12,700, Germany with $11,500, and Canada with $10,000.
The UK, which is in the bottom 10 percent of pay, has an average PIMsoi of $10 and the highest salary of all at $26,800.
The highest paid in the US are the top paid surgeons, who have a median salary of nearly $180,000, followed closely by the top surgeons in the UK.
The US has the sixth highest POMSI score of the world, with $33,400, followed the UK at $31,700 and Canada at $29,700.
Germany and the United Kingdom are the two top-paid cancer specialists in the PIMISI.
The most expensive country to perform cancer care is France, with a median PIMI of $17,000 and the second most expensive at $19,900.
Spain has the lowest PIMSSI of the top five countries, with the median PimSI of $2,400.
The U.S. has the fifth-highest PIMSBIs of the 11 PIMSTIs with a PIMSPI of only $10.
Germany is the most expensive of the 10 PIMISA countries with a high POMSPI at $16.5 million.
The least expensive country is the Philippines, with an median POMSOI of less than $9 million, followed close behind by the United Arab Emirates, which averages $11.4 million.
