Statistics reveal trends for Specialists; Hospital Employment, Compensation

A recent NY Times article entitled Apprehensive, Many Doctors Shift to Jobs With Salaries cited several interesting statistics relating to physician specialists, hospitals and compensation including:

  • 50 percent of surgeons and 25 percent of surgical subspecialists - such as ophthalmologists and ear, nose and throat surgeons - are employees rather than independent, according to the American Medical Association.  
  • The base salaries of physicians who become employees are still related to the income they can generate, ranging from... $575,000 in cardiology to $663,000 in neurosurgery, according to Becker's Hospital Review, a trade publication.
  • The fraction of cardiologists employed by hospitals rose to 35 percent in 2012, up from 11 percent just five years earlier, according to the American College of Cardiology.
