MGMA: Medical Director Duties, Compensation Vary Widely
Recruitment. Primary Care medical directors with recruitment responsibilities reported $27,500 in compensation, compared to $20,000 for primary care directors without that responsibility.
According to the majority of survey respondents, being a medical director takes about four to six hours per week. Anatomical and clinical pathologists reported the greatest number of hours worked per week in a medical directorship (31 hours) while noninvasive cardiologists reported only three hours per week.
The voluntary on-line survey, which was conducted between October and December in 2010, contains data on 1,529 medical directorships in 255 medical organizations.
