How provider pay has changed over the last 3 years

Several factors have contributed to a fluctuation in provider pay over the last three years, including increased demand, unemployment rates and a changing medical landscape. 

While physician pay is typically higher than, and increases faster than, the average salary, it is not immune from taking dips due to outside factors. 

A 2022 report from Weatherby Healthcare compiled primary care physician and specialty physician salary data from the last four years from Medscape, while Doximity chronicled physician assistant salaries.
