Compensation and Available Practice Opportunity Data

The majority of cases involve providing retroactive and current compensation data along with productivity compensation, medical malpractice insurance, signing bonus, relocation expense, and other recruitment incentives. This information is essential in validating and/or rebutting data created by forensic economists/accountants.

Some cases involve conducting a forensic (retroactive) job search to determine what positions would have been available during a specific period of time and in a specific geographic location. This requires identifying appropriate professional journals, research in medical libraries, and researching Internet job boards.


Ms. Levison began her career in healthcare search in 1983. She advanced in her career with three search firms in San Francisco (search consultant, manager, and vice president) before establishing Levison Search Associates in 1988. Levison Search Associates has a strong reputation for professionalism and ethics. This is supported by more than 1,300 successful search assignments for physicians, advanced practice providers, and healthcare executives.
