Low comp creates challenges for neurology
Although neurology compensation has been increasing steadily in recent years-neurologists earned a median total cash compensation of $216,199 in 2005, according to the MGMA 2006 Physician Compensation and Production Survey-it remains among the lowest compensation levels of all nonprimary care specialties. For example, invasive cardiologists earned $463,801 in 2005, more than double what neurologists earned, and gastroenterologists pulled in $384,015, according to the MGMA survey. Lower compensation levels in neurology and rising salary figures in other specialties have led to a shortage of neurologists, and some wonder whether the specialty will be able to keep up with rising demand.
