Why do junior doctors/residents get paid more than fully trained teachers?

Both are important jobs, but one is more important than the other. One takes more education than the other.

The training and knowledge to become a doctor is much more extensive than to become a teacher. The hours are much longer as well. As part of this, less people go through the schooling to become a teacher thus there are less available to hire. As any teacher should know, a lower supply compared to demand means higher prices.

Supply and demand. Anyone can get credentials to be a teacher. It takes many years to become a doctor, and few people can manage it.
