Income for ID Physicians Dropped in 2009

Infectious disease physicians saw their income drop in 2009, according to data from the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA). The median compensation for ID physicians in 2009 was $201,543, compared with $211,149 in 2008.

ID physicians who practiced in single-specialty groups were more likely to have higher compensation ($206,177) than those in multi-specialty practices ($200,405), according to the MGMA data. The data indicate that ID physicians in the South ($223,550) fared better than their colleagues in other parts of the country.

The data is available on the IDSA website, along with guidance on how to negotiate equitable compensation arrangements for infection control and other ID services. You must be logged in to access this content.
