Looks like if you want to be rich in Florida, you'll probably have to go to medical school. 

Recently the career database website Zippia created a list of the 100 highest paid jobs in Florida for 2016, and medical-related professions took the bulk of the top 10. 

The website used data sets from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to compile all 754 job classifications into a list and found that surgeons are the No. 1 highest paying job in Florida.

Surgeons are followed closely by anesthesiologists, so maybe if cutting people open isn't your thing, you could study how to knock them out instead. 

Here's the whole list:
