Physician compensation increases seen in 2016 were similar to those seen in 2015, according to a survey conducted by trade association AMGA. Using data from 269 medical groups representing more than 102,000 providers, AMGA examined compensation trends for 140 physician specialties and 28 other provider specialties.

More than three-fourths of physician specialties experienced increases in compensation, with an overall weighted average increase of 2.9%. In 2015 the average increase was 3.1%. The specialties that saw the largest increases were ophthalmology (7.7%), cardiac/thoracic surgery (7%), and hematology and oncology (6.7%).

Primary care specialties saw an average increase of 3.2%, which was slightly less than the 3.6% increase from the previous year.
