A look at academic hospitalists

How does comp, workload stack up to nonacademic colleagues?

January 2020

IN OUR 2019 SURVEY, more than half (51.5%) of responding hospitalists report working at a teaching hospital or university. Of those, 27% say they work at a teaching hospital as part of a teaching service, while another quarter (24.5%) work at a teaching hospital but don’t do any teaching. But only 16% of physicians who responded say they consider themselves to be academic hospitalists. Among them, 79% not surprisingly work at a university/medical school, and an outsized percentage—27%—are in the Northeast. Here’s a look at how those academic hospitalists compare to their nonacademic colleagues when it comes to pay, shift length, work hours and more.
