Session Description
Academic activities of faculty are variable. While the ACGME recommends scholarship activities (publications, lectureships, curricula, teaching courses and leadership) some notable items are missing (mentorship, for example), and the weight each item is not specified. It’s often difficult for hospital leadership to compare and evaluate for performance-based compensation. Rewarding academic activities will likely improve recruitment and retention of top talent and increase training environment performance in general. N Engl J Med. 1996 Jan 18;334(3):162-7.
