Specialist compensation outpaces primary care












Specialists' compensation has risen steadily in recent years, according to the Medical Group Management Association. The MGMA surveyed 960 member practices and found that of 17 selected specialties, 14 saw compensation increases last year. The highest gains occurred in anesthesiology (14.6 percent) and urology (12.2 percent). Meanwhile, primary care physicians enjoyed only modest gains in earnings.
