Median salaries for physicians specializing in cardiology are rising throughout the U.S., according to a survey from MedAxiom, which is associated with the American College of Cardiology.
MedAxiom surveyed nearly 4,000 cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, advanced practice providers and non-clinical employees to gather insights for its survey.
What you should know:
1. Median total cardiology compensation increased across all U.S. regions, but salaries in the southern U.S. increased the most.
2. Electrophysiologists ($678,495) and interventional physicians ($674,910) were the top earners.
3. Cardiologists in integrated ownership models out-earned private physicians at every subspecialty level.
4. Discharge columns per cardiologist declined because some elective procedures migrated to the ambulatory setting.
