The Medicus Firm, a national physician search firm headquartered in Dallas, TX, with additional offices in Atlanta, GA and Boston, MA, released its 2nd annual primary care and advanced practice placement compensation summary report.
The data featured in the report is not obtained from a salary survey, which is subject to user discretion. This primary care placement report is a summary based solely on actual placement records, providing accurate data on the average offers being extended, and accepted by primary care physicians nationwide. The report highlights placement salaries for family practice physicians and internal medicine physicians who were placed with clients of The Medicus Firm in 2016.
"Due to the increased demand for primary care providers, as well as a larger placement volume of primary care physicians in recent years, we created this new report to help hospitals and other physician employers in crafting their primary care offers, including salary and signing bonus," states Jim Stone, president of The Medicus Firm.
Below are a few of the highlights of the primary care salary/offer data from 2016, as compared to that of 2015.
"Primary care has become intensely competitive to the point that hospitals and physician employers are competing with one another on a national scale for physicians, not just regionally or locally," Stone adds. "Even the most popular locales and desirable, high-profile employers may find primary care recruitment significantly challenging. This increased demand is driving up salaries, and especially signing bonuses, for internists and family medicine physicians," he concludes.
