There are, however, significant benefits for a military physician compared to their civilian counterparts, although they are less tangible than a paycheck. The median annual cardiothoracic surgeon salary in the United States is a hefty $, This equates to about $ per hour. This is well in the range of the middle 50% of surgeons, which is between $, and $,
