  2. Physician Pay Increased in 2017 as Demand Grew: Study

    Physician compensation across the country grew 5.1% in 2017 as increased demand put pressure on labor markets, according to a new study from Doximity, a social network for physicians and advanced practice clinicians. By studying physician job opportunities and compensation data, the report found significant job advertisements and compensation growth, analyzing 20 of the largest metropolitan areas and 15 common medical specialties.

    Drawn from a sample of more than 12,000 physician job advertisements nationally, the report details the parts of the country and which medical specialties have the highest demand for physicians. Compensation growth was drawn from 40,000 self-reported compensation surveys.
