The annual Medical Group Compensation and Financial Survey, published by the American Medical Group Assn., is available in an online, searchable format to paid subscribers.

The annual survey, now in its 21st year, includes individual compensation levels for experienced physicians, as well as the starting salaries of residents and nonphysician administrative staff. The data can be exported to spreadsheet programs and can be queried by compensation-to-productivity ratios and broken down even further by practice characteristics.

Access to the database will only be available to paid subscribers. One-year subscription rates range from $425 to $1,900 depending on AMGA membership and the number of users. For a limited time subscribers can gain access to the 2008 data as well as the 2009 data, once it is released in the fall. The 2010 data will require a new subscription. Subscriptions can be ordered online (link).
