Physician Compensation Up Slightly in Academia

John Commins, for HealthLeaders Media, March 21, 2011

Among specialists, compensation for pulmonary medicine faculty rose 7.38%, and noninvasive cardiologists’ compensation increased 6.7%. Ophthalmologists noted moderate decreases.

MGMA’s survey also reported that seniority plays a big role in determining compensation. Department chairs and chiefs received the greatest compensation, $292,243 for primary care faculty and $482,293 for specialty care faculty. Primary care professors received $190,815 in compensation and specialty care professors received $268,786.
