In 2008, ASTS launched the first ever comprehensive compensation study for transplant surgeons practicing within the United States. Subsequent surveys were released in 2010 and 2013. An overwhelming number of members continue to participate in the survey and the results provide a better understanding of transplant surgeon compensation.

The staff surgeon level report is designed to allow individuals to easily compare their salary and benefits with their peers at the staff surgeon and program director level. Data have been aggregated by region, practice type, personal and center volume and primary practice in order to provide the most comprehensive data.

The expanded, leadership level report is designed to allow individuals at the leadership level to easily compare their salary and benefits with their peers at the Division Chief, Transplant Center Director or Institute Director/Chief level.  Institutions can use the data to benchmark compensation. This complete report includes and expands on the staff level results and contains compensation data for the leadership levels.

ASTS is pleased to provide this unique service to the transplant community. The 2013 survey results are available for purchase to members, non-members and institutions in the ASTS online store. Members who submitted their data for the survey were provided with a complimentary copy of the report. If you participated in the survey, and would like to request an additional copy of the report, please contact Laurie Kulikosky at laurie.kulikosky@asts.org.
