2012 Salary Survey Results

Salary information by specialty, region, education and more

Throughout the last months of 2012, we asked readers of ADVANCE for Administrators of the Laboratory and ADVANCE for Medical Laboratory Professionals to provide information about their salaries, including their titles, type of facility, region, specialty, years of experience, and more. Now, the results are in, and they offer some good news in these difficult times, as salary increases were seen throughout the data. According to data from 875 respondents, the average laboratorian is a female certified bench technologist, aged 50-59, and works in a hospital laboratory. While this provides some insight into the data, we must dig into the details to see the bigger picture.

In the list by title chart, you show "Pathology" with an average salary of approximately $80,000. In the accompanying text, you identify that as the average salary for "pathologists." Based on my experience, I find that incredulous. Perhaps that is the national average for pathologists' assistant (MHS degree) but not for a pathologist (MD).
