  • Salary Range, Minimum Wage, and Starting Salary

    Salaries in Health and Medical in Iraq range from 640,000 IQD (starting average salary) to 9,150,000 IQD (maximum average salary, actual maximum is higher). To clarify, the number presented is not the legally mandated minimum wage. Rather, it represents the lowest figure reported in a salary survey that involved thousands of participants and professionals from across the entire country.

  • Median Salary

    The median income in the field of Health and Medical is 2,780,000 IQD, implying that half of the workforce in Iraq earns less than this figure, and the other half earns more. It represents the central value of salaries. As a rule of thumb, you would prefer to be part of the group earning above the median wage, situated on the right-hand side of the salary distribution chart.

  • Percentiles and Salary Scale

    Two values that are highly correlated with the median are the 25th and 75th percentiles.

Additionally, the diagram reveals that 75% of individuals earn less than 3,780,000 IQD, while 25% earn more than that.

  • Pay Scale Structure

    Data was regrouped into brackets to provide a better understanding of what salaries can be expected. This approach was deemed more accurate than relying solely on the average salary, as it offers greater insights into the distribution of salaries in the field of Health and Medical in Iraq. The analysis revealed that roughly 65% of all reported salaries fell within the range of 1,360,000 IQD to 3,290,000 IQD. Approximately 20% of salaries were below the 1,360,000 IQD mark, while 10% ranged from 3,290,000 IQD to 4,170,000 IQD. Only 5% of individuals earned a gross salary of 4,170,000 IQD or higher.

Employees who earned a Bachelor's Degree earn 24% more than those who only managed to attain a certificate or diploma.

Professionals who attained a Master's Degree are awarded salaries that are 29% more than those with a Bachelor's Degree.

Finally, PhD holders earn 23% more than Master's Degree holders on average while doing the same job.

Is a Master's degree or an MBA worth it? Should you pursue higher education?

A Master's degree program or any post-graduate program in Iraq costs anywhere from 10,300,000 IQD to 30,900,000 IQD and lasts approximately two years. That is quite an investment.

Employees can't expect any salary increases during the study period, assuming they already have a job. In most cases, a salary review is conducted once education is completed and the degree has been attained.

Many people pursue higher education as a tactic to switch to a higher-paying job. The numbers seem to support this tactic. The average increase in compensation while changing jobs is approximately 10% more than the customary salary increment.

The decision really depends on the situation and experience among many other factors. Putting all variables aside, if a person can afford the costs of higher education then the return on investment is definitely worth it. Degree costs can be recovered roughly in a year or so.

The most standard form of bonus, where the employee is awarded based on their exceptional performance.
