Medical Director Compensation

Hospital medical director positions are often more time-consuming than in the past, so physicians increasingly are expecting compensation for the position. This article shares data on compensation per year, an hourly rate, and annual hours worked for these types of medical directors:

  • Cancer center/oncology
  • Cardiology
  • Emergency medicine
  • Hospitalist
  • Information services/medical informatics/EMR
  • Neurosurgery
  • Orthopedic surgery
  • Pediatrics
  • Stroke
  • Vascular lab

The compensation data is based on the 2011 Medical Director Survey from Integrated Healthcare Strategies. More information is available at http://www.ihstrategies.com/sur_nhc_director.php
