What is Dr. Anthony Fauci’s net worth? Everything you want to know

Dr. Anthony Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the US. Dr. Fauci is also a physician & immunologist who has served as an advisor to every American president since Ronald Reagan. 

Dr. Anthony Fauci’s net worth has not been disclosed to the public however, his substantial yearly salary points towards a hefty amount. At present, Dr. Fauci is serving as a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. Dr. Fauci is at the top of his field, having risen to the positions of White House adviser & director of NIAID. Here are the numerous accomplishments Dr. Fauci has under his belt. 

Dr. Fauci’s salary & net worth 

In 2018, Dr. Anthony Fauci reportedly made $384,000 while serving as a Medical Officer at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. He has worked for the National Institutes of Health for around fourteen years and worked his way up from $200,000 salary. 

The report of the doctor’s salary also mentioned that his earnings were 204 percent higher than other medical officer’s salaries. With such a high yearly salary Dr. Anthony Fauci’s net worth is likely several million dollars. The reason Dr. Fauci is so highly compensated & has a high net worth has to do with his level of expertise in treating various infectious diseases. 

Education & titles 

Dr. Fauci began his medical career after graduating first in his class from Cornell University Medical College. He then completed his medical internship at what is now known as New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine. 

In 1986, Dr. Fauci joined the National Institute of Health as a clinical associate. He became head of the Clinical Physiology Section of the Laboratory of Clinical Investigation and in 1980 he was appointed Chief of the Laboratory of Immunoregulation. In 1984, Dr. Fauci was appointed director of NIAID and turned down George H.W. Bush’s offer to make him head of the NIH. 

Medical research & contributions 

Dr. Fauci has been at the forefront of clinical research into immune-mediated diseases and has also been a frontliner in battling AIDS & HIV, ebola, and zika among others. Dr. Fauci developed the idea of using chemotherapy drugs to suppress abnormal immune responses in patients with autoimmune disorders, leading to breakthroughs in treating previously incurable vasculitis syndromes. 

In the 1980s, during the AIDS epidemic, Dr. Fauci received backlash from AIDS patients’ advocates who fought for a more urgent release of drugs to combat the disease. Dr. Fauci responded by pressing the government to increase funding for AIDS research & treatment and making seminal contributions to the understanding & treatment of the AIDS infection. 

Dr. Fauci has acted as a visiting professor at many universities and has received thirty-eight honorary doctorates degrees from colleges in the US & internationally. From 1983 to 2003, Dr. Fauci was the 13th most cited scientist out of 2.5 to 3 million authors. From 1993 to 2003, Dr. Fauci was also the 9th most cited scientist in the field of immunology. 

White House task force member 

Dr. Fauci’s extensive experience & expertise in infectious diseases had led him to be named one of the most trusted medical figures in the US by The New Yorker & The New York Times. However, Dr. Fauci has faced criticism for his advice on the coronavirus pandemic. 

While Dr. Fauci has strongly advocated for testing, social-distancing, and preventative measures, he was met with strong resistance from a portion of the public and even some White House officials. Due to his stance, Dr. Fauci has endured death threats as well as been the victim of false reports. 

As the coronavirus pandemic progresses, Dr. Fauci has not stopped advocating for increased vigilance in stemming the spread of the disease.

  • Looks like a super villain with that mask on.

    August 7, 2020
  • Sorry folks. Fauci and his cohorts are all too cozy to pass the smell test with me. They are all extremely wealthy, have conflicts of interest everywhere you look and stand to make billions on the vaccine to defeat this COVID-19 PLANDEMIC!!! Come on people. I can’t be the only one who sees the red flags here.

    August 17, 2020
    • Exactly!!

      October 6, 2020
    • Fauci will not make any money off of a vaccine. What exactly do you mean by cohorts? Dr. Birx? Dr. Bright? They aren’t going to make any money off this either other than their usual salaries. They have no conflicts of interest. The only red flags I see here are the ones you waving.

      October 10, 2020
      • Well said

        October 18, 2020
      • I agree with you 100%

        October 19, 2020
      • What I can not understand is why some people who live on Fox, and troll the social media tabloids as their only source of information. then they make all kinds of unsupported statements, and accusations without giving any facts, or pointing to any evident. Dr. Fauci salary is about $300k, he is ranked among the top 10 worldwide for being sited for his many writing and publications. He has been working his butt off for over 40 years trying to keep us safe, and I will bet you that he doesn’t have as much money as some football players and rap music performers have….

        November 23, 2020
    • You look like a trump Conspiracy theorist
      Period. Tony, after 40 years in the business now makes $ 384.000 with NO SHARE OR BONUSES GIVEN FOR BREAKTHROUGHS HE’S helped discover. Grow up , go back to school and learn how to research issues properly, FACTS MATTER EVERY DAY!

      October 18, 2020
      • I agree with Johnny 100%

        October 19, 2020
    • Terrence, He is extremely wealthy because he works extremely hard! That is not too hard to figure out!
      Doctors like Dr, Fauci do not have money as their top priority going through life, they really do care!
      This is also not too hard to figure out!

      November 2, 2020
    • No red flags to me. The people who are against Fauci are the ones who are in the Conspiracy Theory camps. It be best to research before you post hateful comments on those that have dedicated themselves for the better of all

      November 16, 2020
  • Any one Who doesn’t believe the science and doesn’t mask up deserves to catch the virus.

    August 27, 2020
    • They say “trust the science”. Well, it is the scientists that gave us this pandemic. Fauci’s organization paid Chinese labs millions to manipulate and concoct this man-made virus. I say lets trust real doctors who treat real patients. Fauci hasn’t taken a pulse in 50 years. Fauci has sent mixed messages from day 1, when he was telling the world that “masks might make you feel better wearing them but they really don’t do much to stop the spread.” then he said “I wear a mask because it is the right thing to do.”

      Why is Fauci against using a number of drugs that quickly and effectively treat people with the China virus. Why is he in bed with Bill Gates — who is not a doctor but who is pushing his own agenda for a vaccine that will make him richer, and Fauci.

      How did Fauci become a millionaire working a federal job? The same way politicians do — taking kickbacks from large corporations to write certain documents and send contracts to them (big pharma).

      No, he’s a corrupt clown just like Biden, Obama, Clinton, Pelosi and the rest.

      October 7, 2020
      • So many lies, so little time. What evidence do you have he is in bed with Gates? Reliable source please. Gates gives away money to help develop a vaccine through his foundation. He does not stand to make money from it. Fauci likewise will not make anything off the vaccine. He owns no patents nor does he have any investments in pharmaceuticals. The NIH is a government agency, not Fauci’s organization. The NIH gave a grant of 3.7 million to EcoHealth to study coronaviruses in bats because of what happened with SARS1, only $600,000 of which went to the Wuhan Lab. They used the money to study viruses not to create them. As for wearing or not wearing masks, when masks were in short-supply we were encouraged to leave them to health care professionals. Afterwards it was realized that while masks other than N-95 masks won’t stop you from getting Covid they can stop you from spreading it, so if everyone wears a mask then the chances of infection go down by about 80%.

        October 10, 2020
    • Yes…you are correct!

      October 19, 2020
    • Not to harsh a punishment considering the 99.6% survivability rate.

      November 19, 2020
  • I would love to see his stock porfolio and that of his family. Every time teh stock market rises, he tanks it. I wonder what his moves are?

    September 3, 2020
    • Fauci holds no stock in any pharmaceutical company. I suspect he has mutual funds in his retirement accounts like the rest of us.

      October 10, 2020
      • How do you know every aspect of his life and personal finances with such certainty?

        November 19, 2020
  • Curious why he is still working? almost 80 years old.
    Big Pharma puppet
    Curious what his true net worth is!
    Always flip flopping his opinion.. Masks aren’t safe oh now masks need to be worn
    Asymptomatic ppl are no threat then changes his mind again and again

    RETIRE ALREADY- your advice is useless, inaccurate and guided heavily by the vaccine pushers

    October 6, 2020
    • You know nothing, just another Trump sycophant. As an MD at 68, I keep working to make a difference. So does he. Come back and say something after you have been in training for for 15 years before you can enter into practice. All of us in medicine have seen enough death and disability, to know the difference between a Dr. Fauci and a President that doesn’t have an empathetic bone in his body, rushes to get treatment that the rest of can’t receive, and denies the science for an appropriate response that would have avoided this American holocaust which will leave nearly 400,000 dead by February. Because he thinks only with his gut, though I am not sure he would do any better with his brain, we all suffer. After four tours in the Middle East, I have not tolerance for such a lack of integrity
      ( especially from a draft dodger ) that he exhibits everyday.

      October 18, 2020
      • Your president is almost 80 too! He is still working! Smh! You should THINK before you speak!!! And about the Mask! Just wear it, just incase. I promise you, it doesn’t hurt. You know better you do better. Period!!!!

        October 20, 2020
      • I’ve been a patient of DrFauci for five years now at NIH. He and his team have found a way to keep me alive for five years now and I am so grateful. Some of these comments drive me crazy. Lebron James makes over 100 million a year but they’re breaking DrFaucis balls over $350,000.00. That’s crazy! He’s a genius and worth every penny.

        October 28, 2020
      • Are you suggesting that COVID-19 will be about what? 250% more deadly between now an February?

        November 19, 2020
  • He is still working because he was determined to see a cure or vaccine for HIV before he retired. Now he has bigger fish to fry. He is know puppet to Pharma. He owns no patents or stock in those companies. He changes his guidance as more data comes in. That is what scientists are supposed to do.

    October 10, 2020
  • Thank you doctor falchi for all you’ve done for our country please disregard these idiot ass Republicans trying. To kiss Donald Trump’s ass thank you

    October 18, 2020
  • Amen!

    October 19, 2020
  • TEAM DAN!!!!!!🥰

    October 20, 2020
  • If you were seriously ill with COVID 19, would you rather be treated by Dr. Fauci with his years of medical experience, or President (and I use the word loosely) Trump with his Clorox needle?

    October 28, 2020
    • Trump called on Dr. Fauci when he got the virus and was at Walter Reed. So he wanted him when was sick. That speaks volumes.

      November 2, 2020
  • Fauci is ruthless and unscientific. He rules with an unscientific and iron hand. H ruined Dr Peter Duesberg’s, author of the Invention of the AIDS virus career because Dr Duesberg believes the HIV virus does NOT cause AIDS any more than the the Carono Virus is the cause of COVID 19. If the virus caused AIDS, Magic Johnson would have developed AIDS by now after stopping taking AZT, Dr Fauci’s recommended medicine which probably caused AIDS. Fauci is rich and has too much power. He opposed the use of Hydroxychloroquine when it would have prevented deaths so I believe he should be charged with murder. Profits and Power is what he is interested in.

  • we need to get rid of him, he is too old and too connected to big business. relic.

    always wonder why he is trying to scare everyone, there is good news out – he just wants to line his pockets

  • Lots of poorly educated idiots on this board (sorry for being blunt) most are just mouthing what they are told, read or hear like echo chambers. The sad fact is that the “experts” have either been wrong, negligent or dishonest about this virus. And the policies coming from them have not been effective. We are entering flu season so of course infections will rise. But the death rate has been coming down due to therapeutics and treatments that we have learned to be effective. Trump put a very large push on a Vaccine and we will have one soon. The chances of dying from this are less than 1% if you are under 70 and don’t have underlying conditions.
    Get back to work! Get back to School! Live your lives and stop the fear mongering. Masks that 99% of us have are not N95 grade and do nothing from preventing us from getting covid. They may help somewhat with spreading but the experts aren’t even sure of that…no serious studies. So protect the “at risk” elderly and ill and everyone else get on with your lives. Take what precautions you choose as that is your right to do or not do as adults. We are doing more testing than anyone in the world and that will find more of the infected people out there. It is going to take time for people time build up resistance or the vaccines to be distributed. It has always been this way with virus and will be this way with Covid 19. Sure wish Fauci wasn’t hyper fear mongering as he but instead focusing on improving therapeutics, getting a vaccine and proactively targeting hot spots. Lock downs are a very bad idea. We must learn to live with this till it’s gone. Stop hating your fellow citizens that disagree with you and take personal responsibility. This is still a free country. I wish people were as outraged about drug use which is killing more people than the outrage over a mask. Anybody talking to their kids about the dangers of drug use?

    November 1, 2020
    • William, I can tell by your writing that you must be well educated and versed in many facts, you probably know all things.

      November 23, 2020
  • Lock downs are the byproduct of those who choose not to follow the advice of real experts. Following the measures suggested by science wards off closures. If only our arm chair scrolling experts could realize that.

    November 3, 2020
  • Why is it that countries that have lockdowns where there are reported cases of Covid 19 have little or no cases afterwards. They do tracing, testing and quarantining. They don’t want us there because they are afraid we will infect them because we don’t seem to want to follow any rules to protect ourselves.

    November 4, 2020
  • If the Virus originated in some country that could not defend themselves,the rhetoric would be a lot different than it is at the present.The world would like to know exactly how the virus originated and entered the world population.There are all kinds of theories,some blame wild life dietary habits,others insinuate that the original virus taken from nature was tweaked with its DNA make up and became a Super Virus.Someone out there has the answer and all we are told is to wear a mask and wash our hands.

  • David e martin pandemic clip 3——look it up then decide about fauci and his past work developing corona —–he has long history with evil and chance to make lots of money —-u-tube

    November 13, 2020
  • Corona Virus has been a godsend to bullies and armchair Gestapo who like to lord it over others and tell them what to do with their lives. Nothing separates the free thinkers from the virtue signallers than the wearing of face masks.

    November 18, 2020
  • How many times does Miss manrck have to be reminded that if you follow the facts this man gets paid over $400,000 a year he hides his salary now that he’s a government official Freedom of Information he’s going to have to disclose his money not only the money he gets for his so-called book and the money he gets from the World Health Organization and how much funding through the back door of the Chinese government gives them to carry on this facade about it came from a bat it came from the Chinese government’s viral Warfare lab in Wuhan plain and simple they’ve downloaded all the stuff you can’t find the information on what they were working on nobody has walked through the doors of that lab and ask for all papers containing to what they were doing what they found and by the way Susan you forgot that they had infected people in August of 2019 and it went on for there and it’s amazing how they let 3500 people go across the world to infect the whole world you might want to get your head out of the sand and look at the real world everybody isn’t stupid have a wonderful life and your little test tube

  • Dr. Fauci is a God. Shame on those who do not worship the ground he walks on. You should kiss his boots and thank him for saving the world.
