Exclusively for Fellows and Residents: Free Salary Calculator Tool



Before you sign your next employment contract, you must consult with the free Salary Calculator Tool from the American Academy of Neurology.

Do you know what kind of compensation to expect? Or what the rates are in your location? Pay structures vary and can be confusing, especially for someone just starting their career. Use the Salary Calculator Tool as a starting point in your negotiations before signing an employment contract.

This tool is ONLY available to AAN member residents and fellows, and it’s offered at no charge! All you need to enter is your member ID and password, and this insightful information is at your fingertips.

“I would recommend that every new neurologist utilize this valuable free tool, which is comprised of the largest database of neurologist-reported data,” said David A. Evans, MBA, who is the COO of Texas Neurology and former Chair of the AAN’s Practice Management & Technology Subcommittee. “The AAN’s salary calculator is an essential resource for residents and fellows to negotiate their compensation with prospective practices and/or hospitals.”

Yes, there are other salary calculators out there, but the AAN’s Salary Calculator Tool is based on information from AAN members who completed the 2019 Neurology Compensation and Productivity Survey, making this the most authoritative guide on neurology salaries available. And it’s FREE!

The AAN’s 2019 Neurology Compensation and Productivity captured data from 2018. With over 3,200 responses, it is the largest data set dedicated to neurology and its subspecialties. Viewing the data within the interactive dashboard allows users to stratify data points by subspecialty, practice setting, gender and more to make the data even more meaningful. 

Want access to salary data but you’re not a resident or fellow? The cost to access the report for those who do not participate in the survey is $600 for AAN members and $1,200 for non-members. Purchase it here.

The AAN’s Practice Management & Technology Subcommittee former Chair, David A. Evans, MBA, has found the information to be particularly useful. “We compared our clinic to the data in the 2015 Neurology Compensation and Productivity Report to identify and make practice improvements, including reducing expenses and improving scheduling to work more profitably and efficiently. We’re benchmarking ourselves against the 2016 report to track our success, re-measure key performance indicators, and further strengthen our clinic’s bottom line.”
