FALL 2014 PracticeLink.com | 101 Who's up, who's down? Rheumatology beats all other specialties by more than double in the measure of how compensation is changing, though the survey notes that in past years, its income has been stable. Also noted is the slight decrease in compensation for procedure-based specialties. Physician compensation by region Vital Stats Facts, news and numbers Your specialty is just one factor in your compensation package. Where you practice also has an impact. The Northeast and Mid-Atlantic once again show the lowest average compensation, and the Great Lakes and Southeast are the regional winners. Chalk it up to supply and demand. The survey notes that one cause may be that smaller communities offer higher pay to attract physicians to the area and have less competition.
