Better know a med school, Part 2.

If you can't afford the trip to eat at or invest in Hospitalis, you must not work at Columbia University in New York. According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, which compiled a list of more than 4,000 employees at 600 private colleges in the United States, 2 of the top 10 earners were physicians at Columbia. In second place overall was Dr. David N. Silvers, a dermatologist who earned more than $4.3 million in 2006-2007, the most recent year for which complete data were available. In eighth place, at $2.5 million, was Dr. Jeffrey w. Moses, an interventional cardiologist. Number one on the list was University of Southern California head football coach Pete Carroll, who made $4.4 million. By comparison, the president of Columbia, Lee C. Bollinger, earned $1.4 million. The president of Colombia, Alvaro Uribe, who is not a doctor but is said to enjoy eating in medically themed restaurants, was not mentioned.
