Arthur | Marshall, the nation’s premier provider of physician search, announced today the release of their 2016 Physician Recruiting Incentives Review. The review is an annual survey compiled of data from searches assigned and placed through Arthur | Marshall over the previous calendar year. It includes information regarding trends in physician compensation, valuable placement statistics, and data reflecting the current state of the healthcare industry.

A few important observations include:

Primary Care and Behavioral Health continue to increase in regard to search frequency. The demand for Family Practice searches increased 5% from 2014.

Production incentives were offered more often in 2015 than the previous year.

Over half of the searches placed last year offered a signing bonus in the ranges of $5,001 to $25,000; up from 40% in 2013.

This survey, along with many other healthcare industry surveys, continues to reflect the intensity of the physician shortage, with primary care specialties comprising the majority of the deficit. According to the AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges), the U.S. could face a shortage of up to 90,000 physicians within the decade.
