    Depends on there work environment 

    Those that are clinic or hospital employees usually get a salary though some are paid per hour, but they are paid by the hospital just like all hospital employees 

    Those in private practice get paid just like all small business owners, the keep whats left over after all expenses are met

    Those in the military get paid by direct deposit and the money comes from the government

    Kinda vague. But if you mean where does their money actually come from, it depends on their practice, their contract, if they do hospital or teaching rotations,  if they take call, their pay or billable mix, what sort of patients they see, etc etc etc.  some are paid solely on billable collected, some a salary, often a 1099 income, others a really is diverse.  If you mean physically, my husband is paid once a month based on billable with a 3 month lag

    Depends on the type of doctor and who they work for.

    For example:

    1) My sister-in-law teaches as a large US university. She has a PhD. The university has a "payroll service provider" that uses direct deposit to a bank account.

    2) My niece is a Pediatrician and works in a "Medical Group". She gets a physical check.

    In both cases, they are paid every two weeks.
