Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 5, 2007
The Delta Companies recently released the first quarter edition of The Physician Recruiting Standard, a free resource that provides a summary of current data and market trends in physician recruitment.
The latest figures show a 16.5 percent increase in average starting compensation for ENT physicians compared to one year ago. Providers in pulmonary critical care, psychiatry and orthopedic surgery also saw similar gains in starting salaries.
Conversely, oncology and anesthesiology show the largest decrease in average starting compensation, dropping 11 percent and 14.4 percent respectively in the past year.
An additional trend to watch is the increasing demand for Hospitalists. The specialty jumped from the twelfth to the sixth most requested search by hospitals over the last twelve months.
