Physician Practice Benchmark Survey. The AMA's Division of Economic and Health Policy Research conducts independent research to support AMA federal, state, and private sector advocacy agendas.

One of the division’s most significant efforts is the Physician Practice Benchmark Survey, which focuses on the practice arrangements and payment methodologies of physicians who take care of patients for at least 20 hours per week and don't work for the federal government. The benchmark survey was last conducted in 2016. Visit this page to download a copy of the latest Policy Research Perspective and other material.
