Free Compensation and Cost Reports Available to Survey Participants

April 25, 2007


Have you ever wondered how your practice’s compensation compares to other practices?

Are you starting a practice and need information on operating costs?

You could get answers to these crucial questions and more-for free-by participating in two benchmark surveys conducted by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA). The AAN is partnering with MGMA to urge neurologists and practice managers to participate in the surveys on salaries and management costs. Participants will receive complimentary copies of the results of the surveys they complete, valued up to $1,190 if both questionnaires are submitted.

This is a unique opportunity for members to receive free survey results on important management topics that can help guide their practices. The assessments will provide neurology-specific information on physician and management compensation, as well as the cost of running a neurology practice.
