Jeffrey Moses ranks #8 on Chronicle’s salary list

A football coach tops the list at $4.4 million, and a Columbia dermatologist followed closely at $4.4 million, but Jeffrey Moses $2.5 million salary was enough to put him in 8th place in the Chronicle of Higher Education‘s list of highest total compensation at private colleges for 2006-2007.  The article notes that college president’s salaries are often outstripped by medical faculty, traditionally the biggest earners, and financial officers. Five of the top 20 salaries went to specialists in in vitro fertilization, all of whom worked at NYU or Weill Medical College of Cornell University.

Moses, a well known interventional cardiologist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, is the director of the Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy and director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab, as well as a Professor of Medicine and the vice president of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation.

The Chronicle assembled the data on pay based on data from the IRS Form 990. You can also read a story in the New York Times.
