Gynecology is one of the highest paying specialties of all medical fields. An average yearly salary for a gynecologist varies due to several factors such as place of employment, geographical location, qualifications in both obstetrics and gynecology, and experience in the field of gynecology. A gynecologist that has certification in more than one specialization receives a higher salary when compared to those having only one specialization.

Gynecologists who have also specialized in obstetrics receive a much higher salary than those who have specialized in only gynecology. Here are some examples of the salaries a gynecologist can make with and without being an obstetrician:

Gynecologist Salary (without obstetrics certification)

Up to two years experience is ~$159,000/yr
Three or more years experience is ~$213,000/yr
Maximum salary on average is ~$358,000/yr

OB/GYN Salary

Up to two years experience is ~$211,000/yr
Three or more years experience is ~$261,000/yr
Maximum yearly salary is ~$417,000/yr

Increasing your educational qualifications will ensure that your yearly salary is rewarding and that you will reap the benefits of the time and effort you've put in. You can take additional courses that are offered by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).
