Most people will gravitate towards something they are interested in, and therefore will most likely be successful at it. If you find yourself attracted to one of these career choices, you may become one of these highest paid.

A family physician makes an average salary of approximately $166,000 per year while emergency room doctors can make up to $210,000 per year.
