Compensation Trends for Medical Practitioners

For the last 24 years, AMN Healthcare has published the Review of Physician and Advanced Practitioner Recruiting Incentives. This report quantifies financial and other incentives offered by our clients to physician and advanced practitioner candidates during the course of recruitment. Unlike other physician compensation surveys, our report tracks physician starting salaries and other perquisites, rather than total annual physician compensation.

Our annual physician surveys give insights into the number of physicians working in your specialty, average inpatient/outpatient revenue and other key data that will help you understand physician compensation trends/new data, supply information, and more.
