    Webinar: The Academic RVU: Ten Years Developing a Metric for and Financially Incenting Academic Productivity at Oregon Health & Science University

    On Tuesday, June 27, 2017, the GBA Emerging Issues Committee held a webinar on the academic RVU.

    Established metrics reward academic faculty for clinical productivity. Few data have analyzed a bonus model to measure and reward academic productivity. Based on an article that appeared in Academic Medicine, this webinar will describe the development and use of a departmental academic bonus system for incenting faculty scholarly and educational productivity in the emergency medicine department at Oregon Health & Science University. The speakers will discuss how faculty academic productivity can be measured and financially rewarded according to an objective academic bonus system - the "academic point" used to measure productivity functions as an "academic relative value unit."
