MGMA: 'Mixed Movement' on Physician Compensation

John Commins, for HealthLeaders Media, June 16, 2011

There was even greater variance for specialists. Orthopedic surgeons reported median compensation of $514,659 -- the highest median of any specialty in the survey -- up 3.7% from 2009, and 15.2% from 2006. However, urologists reported median compensation of $372,455, a drop of 4.66% from 2009, and up 4.15% from 2006, while radiology/diagnostic reported median compensation of $471,253, a drop of 1.6% compared to 2009, and up 5.5% from 2006.

The survey provides data on nearly 60,000 providers, which MGMA said is the largest and most representative provider population of any physician compensation survey in the United States.
