Return on Education (ROEd)

I've been contemplating for some time on how exactly to quantify whether a career in medicine is worth all the costs.  I've tried to address the topic in my previous post The Opportunity Cost of a Career in Medicine.  Unfortunately I did not have data to compare to other graduate degrees.  As it turns out, someone else did that comparison already.  Check out selected screenshots below or see the entire infographic at SoFi.  Spoiler: you can start patting yourself on the back for choosing a career in medicine.

Did you have doubts about the financial implications of your career choice?  Does this put your mind at ease?  Comment below!
