Fewer coordinators are reporting receiving raises, according to the 2020 Residency Coordinator Salary Survey. In 2020, 61% of respondents have received a pay increase within the past year (see Figure 1). This is a drop from the 2019 survey in which 67% of respondents reported pay increases. The 2020 survey results continue the downward trend in reported annual pay increases since the 2016 survey in which more than 75% of respondents reported receiving raises.

The most-cited reason for a pay increase in 2020 was an annual/contractual raise—named by 45% of respondents, a 14% increase from last year. The second most common reason was a performance-related review (40%), down 7% from the 2019 survey.

Of those respondents who did receive a compensation increase, most (37%) saw their earnings increase 2%–2.9% (see Figure 2). Nineteen percent of those who reported a raise had an increase of 3%–3.9% in their earnings.
