Demand, compensation climb for female urologists
In 2006, urologists earned a median total compensation of $336,364, up slightly from $335,731 in 2005, according to the MGMA Physician Compensation and Production Survey. However, CMS-designated safe-harbor surveys send a mixed message about where urology compensation is headed.
The MGMA survey suggests urology compensation remained virtually stagnant between 2005 and 2006, whereas the AMGA found a 7.7% increase from the previous year, and the Sullivan, Cotter & Associates Physician Compensation and Productivity Survey revealed a 5.2% decrease in compensation during that period.
