Michigan Gerontologist Salaries - MI
Michigan gerontologist salaries are competitive with the salaries of gerontology professionals in other states. The average pay curve for gerontology professionals in Michigan rests between $55,000 and $115,000 dollars per year.
When you pursue a career in any of Michigan's geriatrics facilities, your salary will rely heavily on your chosen career path, career level, living costs, and location. If you are a mid-level geriatric psychiatrist living in Grand Rapids, you can expect to earn an average of $85,000 per year. You will make significantly more in Warren, where the salary for geriatric psychiatrists averages around $102,000 per year; if you live in Traverse City, you can expect to earn less than your counterparts in Grand Rapids and Warren (about $79,000 per year).
Your annual salary as a gerontologist may also rely heavily on the level of demand for professionals like you in your area. If you live in a city or town in Michigan with a high level of demand for geriatric nurse practitioners, you will probably earn a higher salary than a GNP living in another area of the state. According to recent statistics, Warren and Livonia currently have the highest distribution of geriatric professionals in the State of Michigan. Grand Rapids, Traverse City, Ann Arbor and Dearborn, on the other hand, are much lower, but will soon be on the rise as the baby boomer population ages.
