Salary Stories Blog has an interview with Frank L. Urbano, MD, FACP who is also the author of several case studies on PrimeInc.org:
"I typically see between 20 to 30 patients per day, and that allows me to have a generous hospitalist compensation package. Hospitalist practices generally have very small overhead compared to outpatient offices, so hospitalist salaries can be higher."
Another hospitalist by the blog name of FatDoctor writes: "My work at urgent care and as a hospitalist is like the Jiffy Lube of healthcare. We can change your oil, but for real care, better see your PCP."
