Physician Compensation and Benefits
by Patrick C. Alguire, MD,FACP
Director, Education and Career Development
In all likelihood, the compensation and benefit packages that you will be offered will differ from one practice or institution to another. Bonuses or improved benefits from one group will probably offset a lower base salary from another. Even if the compensation packages appear to be equal, other factors such as vacation days or practice culture may be importantly different and influence your final choice. It can be confusing to organize these many different but important pieces of data. In order to help you accomplish this task, ACP has created a Physician Compensation and Benefits Worksheet. Please feel free to print or download this worksheet and use it to your advantage when comparing (and negotiating) that important position.
