Andreae, Margie C.; Blad, Kirk; Cabana, Michael D.

Features

Abstract: Many academic health centers are creating incentive-based physician compensation programs, leading to skepticism regarding the impact on the academic mission. We sought to systematically review the impact of these programs. Most academic compensation programs demonstrate a positive impact on clinical and scholarly productivity, quality of education, and faculty satisfaction.
