Nearly all specialties that were represented in Medscape’s 2016 Physician Compensation Report noted a pay increase from the previous year. Rheumatology and internal medicine reported the largest pay increase (12%), while general surgery, anesthesiology, and HIV/ID reported only a 1% increase. Pathology and plastic surgery stayed the same from the previous year. Two specialties, allergy and pulmonary medicine, reported a decrease in compensation, at 11% and 5%, respectively. Nearly 19,200 physicians in over 26 specialties responded to this year's Medscape compensation survey.
