Hospital-Employed Internists Earn Less Than Independent Internists

Physicians practicing internal medicine who were employed by a hospital made less per year than those who were in non-hospital-owned practices, according to the Medical Group Management Association's "Physician Compensation and Production Survey: 2011 Report Based on 2010 Data."

The internist subspecialty also played a factor, as hospital-employed internists who focused solely on ambulatory cases made roughly $70,000 less per year than those who only did ambulatory cases in an independent setting. Here are the average annual compensation figures for internists in 2010 based on their employment status:

Internal Medicine: General
Hospital-owned:  $203,044
Not hospital-owned:  $209,039

Internal Medicine: Ambulatory Only
Hospital-owned:  $189,791
Not hospital-owned:  $259,723

Internal Medicine: Pediatric
Hospital-owned:  $196,324
Not hospital-owned:  $222,645
