Residents' income expectations rise despite wariness about managed care


Income levels expected by the nation's new primary care doctors are still rising, according to a biennial survey of primary care residents completing their medical training, despite managed care's reported downward pressure on physician earnings. This year's survey also shows less enthusiasm for managed care than did the 1995 survey, and much greater preference for salaries over income guarantees.
