This comparative data paints a good picture of the physician market place--both in terms of the size of the prospective candidate pool associated with a given medical specialty and the commensurate compensation linked with that specialty.
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) May 11, 2011
Jackson & Coker, a well-regarded physician staffing firm, has recently released a survey documenting the most updated physician compensation figures associated with 24 medical specialties.
Each year, Jackson & Coker’s marketing department collaborates with an outside, independent research organization in compiling the latest data concerning compensation trends representing major physician specialties. The data is gathered from numerous sources and provides at a glance statistics concerning hourly and annualized compensation for physician jobs nationwide.
The online electronic version of the Jackson & Coker 2011-2012 Provider “Contribution to Operations” Percentage Calculator presents this data in an easy-to-use format that allows hospital CEOs and group practice administrators to compare average gross inpatient/outpatient revenue generated by a particular physician specialty against average hourly and annualized compensation for that specialty.
The figures are compiled in a handy “Physician Staffing Slide Rule,’ which presents data concerning the number of doctors providing patient care in a given specialty and a further breakdown of the nationwide percentage of physicians in different categories: practitioners according to their medical specialty, Board Certified physicians, International Medical Graduates, doctors nearing retirement, and current residents.
“This comparative data paints a good picture of the physician market place—both in terms of the size of the prospective candidate pool associated with a given medical specialty and the commensurate compensation linked with that specialty,” mentioned Edward McEachern, Jackson & Coker’s Vice President of Marketing.
“This information is important in determining locum tenens and permanent employment staffing projections, changes in service line offerings, and formulation of physician compensation models to attract the most desirable candidates in specific medical fields,” McEachern added.
