1. Demographic Information

The information contained in this survey is presented solely for the purpose of informing the membership of ranges of compensation and benefits of medical practice staff. The data may not be used for the purposes of limiting competition, restraint of trade or reducing or stabilizing wages or benefits. Federal and state antitrust laws prohibit such improper use.

Although we realize that we cannot meet the needs of every participant, this survey can serve as a valuable resource in determining compensation for your employees.

All responses are confidential.

We recognize that jobs are different based on the size of the group. We have attempted to create a list of job descriptions with as many types of positions as possible. The job descriptions include the primary duties of the positions and jobs should be matched as closely as possible. Job titles used in the survey may not be the same title used in your group. If an employee has duties that cover multiple positions, then report their hourly wage in all positions.

Refer to Job Descriptions and FAQs on the website at www.wsma.org/salary-survey for more information. If you have any questions, please contact Michelle Lott, CPC, CPMA at 206.441.9762 or via email at mml@wsma.org

You should be able to leave the survey at any time before completion. However, in order to complete the survey,  you must log back in from the same computer. 

Only one survey will be accepted from each practice. Upon completing the survey, the person submitting the survey will  receive an email with  a summary of their personal responses.  

Once all of the survey submissions are tabulated and verified, the final survey results will be sent to the email address provided at the beginning the survey.

The last day to complete this survey will be Friday, March 30, 2018.  Survey results are expected to be distributed at the beginning of July, 2018.

A full time physician works whatever number of hours the practice considers to be the minimum for a normal work week, which could be 37.5, 40, 50 hours or some other standard. To compute the FTE of a part-time physician  divide the total hours worked by the physician by the number of hours that your medical practice considers to be a normal work week. For example, a physician works 24.0 hours and the practice considers a normal work  week  to  be 32.0, the physician would be 0.75 FTE (24 divided by 32 hours).
