Group practice managers' take-home pay is up — except for medical directors


Scroll down for text




















Most physician and lay managers in group practices saw modest compensation increases from 1997 to 1998. Medical directors, however, proved the exception, as their median compensation level fell 14 percent. A breakout of the data indicates that the more time spent on administrative duties, and the greater the share of practice revenue derived from capitated contracts, the better a medical director's compensation is.
