Physician Turnover at All-Time High

Physician turnover has hit its highest rate since 2005, the first year the data was collected, according to the 8th annual Physician Retention Survey from Cejka Search and the American Medical Group Association.

In 2012, the average rate of medical group physician turnover was 6.8 percent, up slightly from 6.5 percent in 2011, but much higher than the 2009 rate of 5.9 percent, according to the survey.

Also, medical groups do not expect a reprieve from losing physicians this year: 36 percent of the groups expect the physician retirement rate to increase in 2013.

The survey reflects responses from 80 physician groups that collectively employ 19,596 physicians.
