Share on Facebook
Physicians across all types of healthcare organizations can expect their salary increases to be around 2.5 percent in 2012, which is down from the pay increases of 2.7 percent in 2011, according to a Hay Group news release.

Hay Group's 2011 Physician Compensation Survey also found that hospital-employed physician specialists might only receive 2.4 percent salary increases, which is below the 4.5 percent salary increases group-based physician specialists might see next year.

Primary care physicians can expect higher pay increases than specialists in 2012 due to the shortage of primary care physicians, according to the release. Based on its survey, Hay Group estimated hospital-employed primary care physicians might receive salary increases of 2.9 percent, and group-based primary care physicians might see salary increases of 3.3 percent.
