Editor’s note: The following is an edited excerpt from Residency Program Alert’s (RPA) coverage of the 2020 Residency Coordinator Salary Survey, which can be accessed in the RPA archive here.

Coordinators with four-year degrees tend to earn more than their counterparts with less schooling, according to the 2020 Residency Coordinator Salary Survey. Seventy percent of coordinators earning more than $70,000 annually have at least a four-year degree. In fact, although the sample size is small, none of the respondents with a high school diploma as their highest level of education earn more than $70,000 a year. See Figure 4 for a full breakdown of salary ranges by respondents' levels of education.

When comparing the 2020 survey with data from some of our previous surveys, the percentage of respondents who report having a bachelor's degree remains high while the number of those with master's degrees has been increasing. As such, the percentage of those reporting an associate’s degree has declined steadily since at least 2015 (see Figure 5). In fact, when respondents to the 2020 survey were asked about the minimum education requirement for their positions, 42% said a bachelor's degree was required (see Figure 6).
