Council of Teaching Hospitals: Survey of Housestaff Stipends, Benefits and Funding, 1992.
This report presents the results of an annual survey of housestaff stipends, benefits, and funding for physicians at teaching hospitals in 1992. The data, presented in 48 tables and 4 figures, are based on responses from 325 members of the Council of Teaching Hospitals (COTH), an 83 percent response rate to the survey. Chapter I contains stipend data for all respondents, reported by hospital region, ownership, and city. Data are unadjusted for regional wage differences and only in Table 2 are data adjusted for inflation. Chapter II contains data on benefits provided to housestaff and their dependents. New questions this year include recruitment incentives, provision of day care, and infection control policies. Chapter III contains data on teaching hospital expenditures and sources of funding for housestaff stipends and benefits. The cross-tabular format displays benefit and expenditure data by region and ownership. Appended are recent articles published in the bimonthly "COTH Report" newsletter. These articles, which are based on data collected in the last year's housestaff survey, address alternative scheduling for housestaff, disability insurance, and immunization policies. Other appendices include the survey response rate by region and ownership and the 1992 COTH housestaff survey questionnaire. (JB)
