How Much Do OB/GYN Physicians Make?
The average annual OB/GYN physician salary is $277,320 per year in the U.S., according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. However, OB/GYN physicians make a total of $337,000 per year, according to Medscape’s 2023 OB/GYN physician compensation report.
How Much Do Locum Tenens OB/GYN Physicians Make?
Locum tenens OB/GYN physicians can make up to $200 per hour, 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 $416,000.
That means locum tenens OB/GYN physicians can make up to 50% more than the average provider. However, making direct salary comparisons can be complicated. While perm OB/GYN physicians are more likely to be salaried, locum tenens OB/GYN physicians are independent contractors earning an hourly rate, which can vary based on which assignments they take in a year.
Furthermore, because locum tenens OB/GYN physicians are paid by the hour, the hours they work are directly reflected in their pay, while a salaried OB/GYN physician’s additional hours may not be reflected in their salary.
Finally, paid time off and insurance may be reflected in the perm OB/GYN physicians salary structure, but locum tenens providers do have options when it comes to health insurance.
