  1. I think you also need to consider how much someone makes after doing a fellowship. Say, an MD in Internal medicine makes $200,000, but after a Cardiology fellowship he probably makes upwards of $500,000 by the end of his career. That would diminish the “opportunity Cost” as per your excel sheet. It would be great if you can add that parameter as well and re-publish the Excel.
