Editor’s note: The following is an edited excerpt from Residency Program Alert’s (RPA) coverage of the 2019 Residency Coordinator Salary Survey, which can be accessed in the RPA archive here. Not an RPA member? Click here for more information about becoming an RPA subscriber.  

Since 2007, RPA has conducted a survey of residency coordinators nationwide, compiling and analyzing data to show how salaries and working conditions can vary and what factors influence how much coordinators earn.

The vast majority of 2019 respondents (89%) earn more than $40,000 annually (see Figure 1). This is up from the 84% of respondents reporting that range in the 2017 survey. The largest percentage of survey takers this year make between $50,001 and $55,000 (19%). Nine percent of respondents reported making more than $75,000 annually, which is nearly twice as many who reported earning that much in 2017.

Coordinator compensation has seen an increase since the 2017 survey, mostly in the salary ranges higher than $50,000 (see Figure 2). In 2017, 28% of respondents reported earning between $50,001 and $60,000; this number increased to 31% in 2019.

Additionally, only 11% of 2019 respondents reported earning between $30,001 and $40,000, in comparison to 14% in 2017. The percentage of respondents earning this amount has been steadily declining since at least 2012.
