The typical reporting organization is situated in a Metropolitan area of 100,000 to 250,000 people, and approximately 40% of the organizations are based in the Midwest region. Reporting organizations employed a median of 1 physician recruiter (2.1 physician recruiters on average), and the typical in-house physician recruiter performed 13 active searches during calendar year 2010. It is noteworthy that the number of searches per recruiter grew sizably for larger organizations. Of those organizations that employed more than 3 physician recruiters, their recruiters were responsible for 23.4 active searches (on average) during the year.
The most common specialties for which searches were performed during 2010 included Family Medicine (13%), Hospitalist (11%), Internal Medicine (8%), Nurse Practitioner (5%), and Physician Assistant (5%).
There was a noted predominance of primary care searches during this time period. The most common sub-specialties and surgical specialty searches were Emergency Medicine, OB/Gyn, Neurology, Psychiatry, and General Surgery. Of the reported searches that were active at some point during 2010: 60% were filled during the year. Median days to fill for Family Medicine and Internal Medicine positions were 150 days and 130 days respectively.
In-house recruiters were unable to self-report their compensation figures. All compensation values were reported by a member of their organization’s Human Resources department. On average, in-house physician recruiters earned a base compensation of $71,123 and received a bonus of $3,426, equaling $74,549 in total compensation.
To further aid the analysis of the compensation data, the recruiters were grouped into three compensation bands: those who earned less than $60,000, those earning between $60,000 and $80,000, and those earning more than $80,000. Based on these groupings, the following can be detected for the highest income earners versus the lower groups: they are more likely to have earned upper-level degrees; they are more likely to be an ASPR member and to hold ASPR designations and other certifications; they are more experienced; and they are much more likely to supervise staff and have provider retention responsibilities.Read the full Executive Summary
