MGMA/NAPR Physician Compensation Survey
MGMA, in collaboration with NAPR, surveys its membership to obtain the most recent physician starting salary placement compensation data. This is the fourth year of data collection and the third year of stand-alone publication for the Physician Placement Starting Salary Survey report. The report provides accurate data on the range of physician placements to assist recruiters and health care organizations in benchmarking salaries and other employment terms. The report also allows users to compare and learn more about the factors affecting first-year placement compensation.  All survey participants receive a complimentary copy of the Physician Placement Starting Salary Survey.  Click Here to Participate
In this report you will find:

  • Complete data on more than 4,000 physicians categorized by specialty;
  • Data reported for signing bonuses and relocation expenses; and
