The IDSA Clinical Affairs Committee, with the approval of the Board of Directors, put forth effort to accurately assess compensation for ID physicians, across the various career tracks (Patient Care, Research, Public Health, Other). In the past three years, the society has fielded a survey to all US members aimed at assessing compensation across the specialty. The survey fielded in 2015 (reporting 2014 compensation) was completed by almost 1,900 respondents and the results can be found here: 2015 Infectious Diseases Physician Compensation Assessment (PDF). The results of this 2015 survey were discussed in Open Forum Infectious Diseases in April 2016.
In 2017, the society fielded another compensation survey to all US members, which was completed by over 2,500 members. The results to the 2017 survey can be found here: 2017 Infectious Diseases Physician Compensation Report (PDF)
