Primary Care Salaries 'Go South'

Go South, young doctor." That seems to be where the opportunity lies in terms of compensation, according to the Medical Group Management Association. The MGMA surveyed 960 member practices to gauge compensation trends and found that median incomes for family practice (without OB), internal medicine (general), and pediatrics (general) were strongest in the South. For family practice (with OB), it was best in the West.
