Having done a Family Medicine residency or fellowship in Massachusetts is often helpful because it means the physician is familiar with MA BCBS and Medicaid procedures.

Family Medicine salaries for the east region of the U.S., including Boston, MA, average around $179,530. On the other hand the national average Family Medicine salary is $197,655, meaning Family Medicine jobs in Boston pay approximately 90.8% of the national mean.
