FYI: Are you negotiating a physician salary?
Filed under: Appendix Newsletter |
This time of year residents and fellows are often leaving campus for new professional opportunities and departments here are hiring new physicians.
A general overview and specialty reports are available. Each year Medscape surveys 24,000 plus U.S. physicians in general and specialty practice in a variety of settings in all parts of the country. Survey participation varies by specialty, so data for some specialties may only represent 200-400 participants.
Educate yourself to ask for and offer the most competitive compensation.
Medscape also offers several other interesting annual reports on ethics, work satisfaction, and insurers. See how you compare with peers on these professional issues. (Scroll down to the Reports in the Business of Medicine section.)
