General pediatricians handle the medical treatment of children from birth until young adulthood. They often see one patient over several years, and all the children in the same family. The U.S. Department of Labor asserts that 30,100 pediatricians earn a mean $79.67 per hour or $165,720 per year. This is just under four times the national average for all workers in the country, which runs $21.35 per hour or $44,410 per year. This is also almost 10 percent less than the mean earnings of family practitioners at $83.59 per hour or $173,860 per year.

Employers

Over 70 percent of all general pediatricians work in the offices of physicians, which include those working for themselves. Here, they earn a mean $81.12 per hour or $168,730 per year. The second biggest employers are general medical and surgical hospitals, with 14 percent of the total jobs, and averages at $76.80 per hour or $159,750. The third biggest workplaces, with almost 6 percent of the jobs, are outpatient care centers. They also have the highest pay for the profession at a mean $87.54 per hour or $182,090 per year. The second highest wages are in the offices of other health practitioners at a mean $87.03 per hour or $181,010 per year. Local government ranks third for salaries at a mean $82.35 per hour or $171,280 per year.
