ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Nov. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of Medical Group Management Association's 2017 MGMA DataDive
When comparing physicians that work in an academic setting versus a hospital/IDS-owned practice, compensation differences are present across the board. With the greatest differential, specialty care physicians in non-academic hospital systems make $122,795 more than those physicians in an academic system for full-time, fully clinical physicians. Primary care physicians earn $57,129 more.
"MGMA's Physician Compensation and Production data is the most comprehensive in the nation," said Dr. Halee Fischer-Wright, MD, MMM, FAAP, CMPE, President and Chief Executive Officer at MGMA. "This data arms practice owners and operators with the information needed to better run their practices and stay educated about what others in the industry are doing."
In addition to general salary differentials, starting salaries also saw a stark difference between academic and non-academic hospital systems. New hires, who are first year post-residency or fellowship, earned more starting out in a non-academic setting than an academic setting across the board. The greatest difference was seen in primary care where the difference can be upwards of $86,000 more than their academic counterparts.
