When choosing where to practice, residents may want to consider moving to rural areas because they offer the biggest compensation packages for primary care physicians, according to healthcare staffing company The Medicus Firm. The average placement salary for primary care physicians—internal medicine and family practice physicians—was about $227,000 in rural areas, which was 16% more than that in urban areas and 10% more than mid-sized communities.

For internal medicine physicians, the average placement salary in rural areas was nearly $257,000, which was 14% more than the average in urban communities and 10% more than mid-sized areas.  Between internal medicine and family medicine, the average internal medicine physician salary was nearly $239,000 across all types of communities, compared to $210,000 for family physicians.
