Doximity released its 2019 physician compensation report comparing average salary differences between specialties, as well as how salary compares for employed physicians and those who own their own practice.
Doximity compiled the report from surveys completed by 90,000 licensed, full-time U.S. physicians who work at least 40 hours a week.
Salary differences in employment status:
Owner, partner: $430,874
Independent contractor: $341,885
Physicians who are an owner or partner in the practice earn 37 percent more than employed physicians, on average, based on this report.
