niggi4life:
mysalaryscale.com has about 5% accuracy for salaries in Nigeria..
Do not be deceived by those figures. Most Nigerian doctors are paid lesser than those figures.

Why do you think they go on strike?

An average Doctor in the U.S is far better than an experienced Doctor in Naija... U guys should use your tongue to count ya teeth.. if u get chance, fly away
That is because an American doctor would be atleast circa $150,000 in student loan debt by the time he or she graduates from their uni. Quality education is not cheap.

Salaries remain an important focal point across both public and private sectors in Nigeria and no matter the industry, every professional wants earn enough to take care of his or her family and needs. The Federal Government has recently banned private practice commonly known as “PP” for Medical Doctors working in the public hospitals in Nigeria; a move that will not only affect the doctors but can actually disrupt the services in the health sector in the country.


mysalaryscale.com recently published an article explaining the salaries of Medical Doctors in Nigeria – given the herculean tasks and responsibilities that rely on the shoulders of an average doctor in Nigeria, it’s not farfetched why they should have their earnings on a totally different salary scale and structure when compared to that of other professions of human endeavors. Starting from getting a university degree, it’s a common trend for a student studying medicine and surgery or dentistry to spend more years than his or her contemporaries studying other courses in art, engineering, and business. This is probably the first reason they should earn more than others.

Secondly, for most institutions, the college of medicine uses a totally different calendar from that of other disciplines in the school. This is more like setting themselves apart from the trends of others. Distinguishing these medical students from their peers and making them stay in school to study those very big books is aimed at making them unbreakable. Those who cannot cope with these rigorous activities often get relocated to other disciplines or even withdrawn from the institution. This soul-breaking procedure adopted by the medical profession sets them apart from other professions.

Now, when they start working, generally they tend to earn more than an average businessman, an engineer or a lawyer. But the reason for this goes beyond the university curriculum and structure of the profession. They primarily earn more because they deal with lives – human lives. They involve in various procedures on a daily basis that decide whether a patient lives or dies. The degree of risk and importance associated with this profession is what basically makes them earn more than other professions on the average. In finance, the higher the risk, the higher the return.

Salary Structure of Doctors in Nigeria

In a survey carried out by MySalaryScale.com in 2017, salary data for different professions were gathered all across Nigeria. It was gathered that a medical doctor earns an average salary of #250,000 per month. This excludes other financial benefits and multiple jobs earnings. The survey also found out that the salary increases with the years of experience in the field. While an entry level doctor earns an average of #170,000, an average middle-level medical doctor earns an average of #270,000.

However, apart from the basic salary, there are other financial benefits attached to working as a doctor in Nigeria. According to the Consolidated Medical Salary Scale (CONMESS), other financial benefits of doctors in Nigeria are as follows;

Specialist Allowance

The specialist allowance applies only to medical/dental officers who are employed as consultants.

Call Duty Allowance

Call duty allowance is payable to medical/dental officers in federal hospitals and clinics. It is to be earned only when an officer would have actually performed call duty in accordance with an existing call duty roster.

Health Professional Non-Clinical Duty Allowance

This allowance is payable to medical/dental officers deployed to render health-related services in the federal ministry of health and other federal health institutions.

Clinical Duty Allowance

This allowance is payable to honorary consultants, who are employed as academic staff in universities but render clinical services to teaching/specialist hospitals.

Teaching Allowance

This allowance is payable to federal medical/dental officers who are engaged in the teaching of medical doctors or other health professionals in training and teaching/ specialist hospitals.

Hazard Allowance

Hazard allowance is also paid across the board to all medical/ dental officers.

Rural posting allowance

Federal medical/dental officers who are stationed in rural communities are also paid this allowance at the rates specified. The federal ministry of health and the national salaries incomes and wages commission jointly determines the designation of a health station as rural.

Multiple Job Earnings of Doctors

Apart from all the benefits listed above for a doctor in Nigeria, those involved in multiple jobs also earn additional. Now, various professions offer the job holders the opportunity to work in more than one firm at a time or involve in two or more tasks simultaneously. The medical profession is one of these professions with the leverage of having multiple jobs holding. For example, most medical doctors who work in government hospitals may also own a private hospital, work as a doctor or a consultant in other private clinics.

The implication of this to doctors’ salary is that it gives them the opportunity to earn more than the average salary of a regular doctor. So, while the research shows #247,000 as doctors’ average salary, with other allowances, it still does not take into account the other earnings they get from working in other hospitals. The amount being earn here depends on the time put, the status of the doctor, and so many other factors. Doctors who have multiple job holdings may generally earn more salary than the average rate.

Nigerians are always quick to compare themselves with folks in the US.

How can you earn the same salary with a US based Doctor when your entire school fees in a federal uni for 7 years cannot pay half the tuition for a 1 year programme in the US?

I'd rather we compare Doctors salaries with other professions IN NIGERIA. It is true that the average Doctors' salary is so poor when compared with those in the US. However, the salary of a Nigerian based teacher, nurse, engineer, etc., aren't anything different. Some teachers here earn less than N30k/monthly.

It is time to face the reality, Nigeria is an economically disadvantage nation. We display nothing but pathological m. a.d ness when we compare the salaries of Nigerian based doctors with those in the U.S. Salary may be lower in Nigeria, but the cost of living is also lower. Many Doctors can comfortably pay their rent with a month salary.

Re: Salaries Of Medical Doctors In Nigeria by Lieyel09(m): 11:50pm On Oct 13, 2017
It was expected that you will at least consult a real doctors before posting salary scales for the profession. But alas you consulted only mysalaryscale.com. Let me enlighten you abt the scale in my centre.

1. A house officer (doctor on internship) which last for 1year earn around #170000 ( some centers pay more or less ). This is the entry level after medical school but as someone said its difficult to get placement, becos there are few hospitals that are approved to offer the programme. Added to this is that if you cannot get placement within 2years you have to write the medical and dental council exam again and renew ur temporary license. After housejob you are given a permanent license to practice without supervision.

Now this is where it gets interesting cos there are so many options available. MO, teaching, residency, public health, politics, business and what hv you

2. MO is medical officer who is employed by a hosp to work a general practitioner. No added qualification is required and their entry level is #250000 and above. They are promoted and salary increases just like any ministry job till they reach the ceiling. Those at the apex earn slightly above #700000

3. Teaching: a medical doctor can go into just teaching in a medical school at the preclinical level. Additional certification is required (masters and currently Phd). Their salary level starts at around #380000 some centres pay more. Teachers at the clinical side also render clinical services and are called honorary consultants their pay grade is different

4. Residency is a training that allows a doctor to specialise in a specific area or become a consultant. Places offering residency are not equal to d number of doctors seeking d training so again it is difficult to get in. There are different cadres and last on average 6-8 years, Some are as short as 4 years

a) Junior registrars (2 ans half years) salary starts at N 350,000 currently (was less than this in the past) after the part 1 exams they progress to senior registrar
b) Senior registrar whose salary currently starts arouund #500,000. After part 2exams becomes a consultant who is either released or retained by his institution
c) Consultants are appointed by the hosp. They are at the peak of their career. Their salary is #800,000 for the new ones and around #1,200,000 for the senior ones. This is why JOHESU members wants to become consultants
so much. In addition to this pay, this are the groups that can consult in different hospital or have private and big shorts patients that they attend to. Depending on how well connected a consultant a is they can earn more than 5times the figures quoted above

5. The public health physicians can be thru masters in public health or residency in public health. They are the ones that populate the ministry of health and other health related agencies, NGOs, WHO and other health related local and international organisations. They get more grants than consultants in other fields and are often quite boxed up.

6. Being a medical doctor does not bar anyone from owning businesses or partaking in politics. Although some prefer to do that after becoming consultant. Infact I know a consultant who owns a car dealership firm and Ngige and Saraki are medical doctors.

7. Now while waiting for placement or appointment as consultant or commonly before making up your mind which area you want to go into a doctor can work in private hospitals where they owners don't pay so well. The pay could between <#100,000 to >500,000 depending on the location

8. Lemme also address the issue of doctors being broke, yes doctors are human being and each individual is prone to making either good or bad choices, invest wisely or live lavishly, or too lazy to seize the many opportunities being a doctor offers. Our teachers used to tell us that as long you know what you are doing as a doctor you might not necessarily be the Dangotes or Adenugas but you will be very comfortable in life and they were very right.

On a final note, lemme also inform many commentors who probably wanted studying medicine but couldnt and sieze the opportunity to insult every thread related to Nigerian doctors. Yes Nigerian doctors are the worst paid doctors in the entire world, but they are doing their best and can never go hungry if they know what they are doing. Ask yourself this question why doctors trained in Nigeria are among the very best when they leave the country? Its simple, human capital alone is not enough to power any system, you need economic and technological capital. Imagine if all the monies spent on medical tourism by elites, government official and indeed any Nigerian who can afford abroad was used to provide state of arts facilities and needed training of relevant health workers, Nigeria will become a centre of medical tourism itself.

I was told a story in medical school of a top govt official during the Gen Abdulsalam Abubarka regime who went to South Africa for a relative's brain, on arrival he was told that they are waiting for the surgeon from Nigeria (prof. B.B. Shehu). The surgery went very fine and afterwards the govt official was ashamed. This led to building of a neurosurgery centre in Sokoto state.

Many junior regs except in some Federal centres earn just above 200 or more.
For consultants, the pay is that much if they are also employed by the college (i.e hospital and college to teach) in isolation, very few make up to 800.

God is watching them in 3D.

Please be objective and don't generalize
