Good point. One I have thought a lot about since pursuing medicine after graduate school. A few thoughts are that it actually takes 8 years of college to get an MD then another 3-10 of residency and fellowship training. Another reason for greater salaries have to do with the work schedule which may entail over 80 hours/wk. Lastly, I agree, researchers who are providing the basic science needed to advance the medical sciences deserve adequate compensation. Unfortunately their salaries are largely dependent on grants which are subject to multiple forces including the economy, funding agencies, direction of research.
