About the Survey

The report is derived from a survey that is dispensed out to hospital medicine groups every other year.

SHM’s Practice Analysis Committee discusses and reviews topics surveyed, fine tunes the questions and releases the survey to the market. Once the results are in, the committee and staff analyze the results and produce the report.

About the Report

The report is an indispensable tool designed for hospital medicine program leaders (both physicians and non-physician practice administrators and executives) as well as frontline hospitalists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pediatricians, internal and family medicine physicians and hospitalist employers to understand the current state of hospital medicine.

According to the 2016 SoHM Report, median compensation for hospitalists serving adults rose 10% to $278,746 from 2013 to 2015. That double-digit increase continues the steady climb of hospitalist pay, which is up 30% since 2010.

The biennial SoHM Report provides extensive insight into hospital medicine group configuration and operation. It includes current data on hospitalist compensation and production, as well as cutting-edge knowledge covering practice demographics, staffing levels, turnover, staff growth, compensation models and financial support for solid, evidence-based management decisions.

It is available in various formats including print only, a bundle of print/digital or digital only.


SHM offers a variety of formats so you can access the State of Hospital Medicine Report however you like.

We participate every time the survey is available. We find it extremely helpful when we are looking at the recruiting and retention of hospitalists, looking at the compensation is and knowing what is happening out there in the industry.

As someone who helps direct at the division of hospital medicine, the Report is incredibly important to me and our group to reflect on things we are doing well and compare ourselves to other organizations nationally.
