How Much Do Endocrinologists Make?

According to Medscape’s 2023 endocrinologist compensation report, endocrinologists average annual compensation is $267,000 per year in the U.S. 

Compensation for endocrinologists has generally increased over the past decade compared to other specialties, and the demand for endocrinologists continues to rise as well.

How Much Do Locum Tenens Endocrinologists Make?

Locum tenens endocrinologists can make upwards of $250 per hour on average, however, there are many factors that impact rates including location, years of experience, and the level of demand.

If you were to extrapolate that rate over a year (at 40 hours per week), the average locum salary comes out to around $520,000. 

That means locum tenens endocrinologists can make up to 95% more than the average provider. However, making direct salary comparisons can be complicated. While perm endocrinologists are more likely to be salaried, locum tenens endocrinologists are independent contractors earning an hourly rate, which can vary based on which assignments they take in a year. 

Furthermore, because locum tenens endocrinologists are paid by the hour, the hours they work are directly reflected in their pay, while a salaried endocrinologist’s additional hours may not be reflected in their salary.

Finally, paid time off and insurance may be reflected in the endocrinologist’s salary structure, but locum tenens providers do have options when it comes to health insurance
