Endocrinology salary results, as well as those provided for different medical and surgical specialties, are based on surveys of physicians in different medical specialities.
Locum tenens positions will often set base pay scale on the national average income. The pay can be adjusted by local cost-of-living difference from the national average.
In evaluating physician jobs, it is useful to know the average pay for a given specialty. Independent of locum tenens positions, the national average of physician salaries in different specialties is often used as a target: a physician who generates the average patient income for the specialty receives the average salary. Bonuses are often pegged to the amount of income generated above the average, or alternatively based on RVUs generated (which is related to actual income generated based on payer mix).
The average physician salary for an internist (see Internal Medicine Survey) can be used as a benchmark for comparison with other medical specialities.
