We continue our dive into the 2020 Residency Coordinator Salary Survey with a look at how survey respondents are paid. Historically, a greater percentage of respondents have reported being salaried vs. being paid hourly, but that gap has been shrinking as the years have gone on. In 2015 there was a 20-percentage-point difference in favor of salaried coordinators, but this year’s results mark the first time in recent years that a greater percentage of respondents reported being paid hourly (see Figure 3).

For several years, the percentage of respondents who were paid hourly and were being paid overtime was increasing, but the 2020 survey saw a slight reversal, decreasing 2% (see Figure 4). The 2020 survey results show a jump in the percentage of respondents who had their overtime capped (+8%). Consequently, the percentage of respondents with uncapped overtime dropped 10%. The gap between the two is narrowing when you consider that in 2019 more than twice as many respondents reported having uncapped overtime hours versus being capped.
