It appears that in the U.S. the training we demand for our doctors and the many high paying alternative professions available to smart, hard working people is the reason for the relatively high salaries doctors command.

I believe the reason is intentional restriction of supply to drive up salaries. The AMA, the doctor's lobby, leans on Congress and others to limit the number of seats in medical schools and internships.

The AMA: Just another corrupt special-interest group. Let 'em die, just gimme more money.
