Each year, ONCOLOGY's sister journal, PHYSICIANS PRACTICE, surveys hundreds of physicians across all specialties regarding their compensation. This year, more than 1,300 physicians were surveyed. Data culled from the oncologists' responses are presented here. As the following graphs show, the results varied widely.
The vast majority of oncologists work more than 40 hours a week, with 38.2% reporting an average work week of over 60 hours.
