Q: I’ve done some research but have found it hard to find information on salaries in Iceland. What is the annual anesthetist salary in Iceland? I am seriously considering majoring in anesthesiology, so any help would be appreciated.

A: The average salary for an anesthetist in the Republic of Iceland is around ISK 1.2 million a month, or around ISK 15 million per year. That is USD 130,000 or EUR 100,000 per year, before taxes. You can read about taxes in Iceland on the homepage of the Directorate of Internal Revenue.
