According to a 2012 Medscape Physician Compensation Report physician income declined in general, although the top-earning specialties remained the same as in Medscape’s 2011 survey.
For employed physicians, compensation includes salary, bonus, and profit-sharing contributions. For partners, compensation includes earnings after tax-deductible business expenses but before income tax. Compensation excludes non-patient-related activities (eg, expert witness fees, speaking engagements, and product sales).
