Great post. Good ideas for negotiating.
Do you know any data publicly available for signing bonuses as a proportion of starting salary?
Thanks for your comment — I appreciate the kind words. No, I’m not aware of publicly available data on median physician signing bonuses. In my experience, it can range from zero (of course) up to twenty percent of annual base. The actual amount can depend on factors that include the size and nature of the employer, whether the base salary is below median, and the general bargaining strength that the individual physician has in the process. Among many other things.
Feel free to contact me if you’d like to discuss further.
