Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Trends in physician compensation are a key area of focus among hospital administrators, group practice managers and physician recruiters. However, the relative value each physician specialty offers a hospital or medical practice is of greater importance.
National locum tenens and permanent staffing firm, Jackson & Coker, has released its 2013 Physician Salary Calculator—a free tool that gives physician recruiters quick access to the return on investment every major physician specialty offers.
The firm’s physician salary calculator is developed through collaboration with outside, independent research organizations that analyze data compiled from a variety of published sources. It also includes data obtained through Jackson & Coker’s national physician compensation study covering 24 medical specialties.
“Our physician salary tool arms recruiters with the most current information we can offer to paint a predictive picture of the physician marketplace,” said Sandra Garrett, president of Jackson & Coker.
According to Garrett, the online version of the salary tool lets hospital administrators and group practice managers calculate the revenue contribution of permanent and hourly physicians in major specialties. The hard copy version includes the number of doctors providing patient care in a given specialty, in addition to statistics such as board certifications, international medical graduates, doctors nearing retirement and current medical residents.
