Anesthesiologists are called upon by many of the other professions on this list in order to administer different forms of anesthesia for their patients. Therefore, since the other professions are going to continue being in demand in 2013, it only makes sense for this profession to also be in demand as well. The average salary for anesthesiologists in 2013 is $228,000.
2. Corporate Executives
Aside from the many high-paying health professions, corporate executives will also hold a top-ranking position on the list of the highest paid professions in 2013 as well. The range of salaries for these executives is much wider than the average salaries for healthcare professionals, but still balances out around an average of $281,000 for upper-level executives.
The highest-paying profession of 2013 will continue to be the professional that is at the top of the food chain in every industry — the CEO. The range of salaries for this particular position is just as wide as that of corporate executives, but statistics have shown that the average salary for 2013 is going to balance out around $1.4 million a year.
