Doctor pay is about flat, but psychiatrists’ compensation is up 11.5%.
That’s from a new Medicus Firm survey of 2,339 physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants in the U.S, about two-thirds of whom are in a practice, with about a third in a residency or fellowship.
More on doctor pay follows in the chart at the bottom of this post. Before that, these other tidbits from Medicus, a medical-recruiting firm with 25 recruiters.
- 75% of respondents say they get inquiries about three times weekly about jobs.
- Networking with colleagues (36%) was cited as the best resources for hearing of new opportunities, with recruiting agencies second at 29%. Physician job boards were just behind recruiting agencies, with journal advertisements cited the least.
- Doctors, by far, want to be contacted by email, not by phone or text.
The chart below shows pay, not including benefits, and not including resident or fellow income.
|Specialty||Average||Percent Up (or Down)|
