The demand for jobs in Peru is led by Administration, Industrial Engineering, Business Administration, Civil Engineering, and Systems Engineering. The Ministry of Labor and Employment Promotion (MTPE) released a report through the My Career platform, revealing the highest paid professions in Peru. This list includes over twenty careers, shedding light on job opportunities and the preferences of Peruvians seeking a professional future.
Among the most sought-after disciplines in Peru are Administration, Industrial Engineering, Business Administration, Civil Engineering, and Systems Engineering. These fields are historically popular in South America, with engineering careers being known for their educational challenges. However, there is one career that not only competes in difficulty but also surpasses engineering disciplines in terms of salary.
The MTPE report highlights the leading professions in terms of remuneration. According to the report, Medicine is the highest-paying professional career in Peru. The average monthly salary for professionals in the medical field is S/ 6,745, with potential earnings ranging from S/ 3,564 to S/ 9,175. Factors such as specialization, work experience, geographical location, and type of employer play a significant role in determining doctors’ salaries.
In Peru, there are various options for studying medicine, including both public and private institutions. Public universities such as Universidad Mayor de San Marcos (UNMSM), National University of San Cristóbal de Huamanga (UNSCH), National University of San Antonio Abad del Cusco (UNSAAC), National University of Trujillo, and National University of San Agustín de Arequipa (UNSAP) offer free education. Private institutions like Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia (UPCH), Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PUCP), University of San Martín de Porres (USMP), University of Applied Sciences (UPC), and University of Piura also provide medical education.
The Ministry of Health (Minsa) recently announced a salary increase for various health professionals, including doctors, technicians, and assistants. However, ensuring the continuity of this benefit requires a significant investment. The Minsa has initiated efforts with the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) and the Congress of the Republic to secure the necessary funds for maintaining these salary increases.
The salary increases for doctors, professionals, technicians, and assistants have been detailed as follows:
– For doctors with five years of service, there will be an increase of S/490, raising the salary from S/6,134 to S/6,624.
