Academic physician faculty compensation models are highly complex and have been evolving in U.S. healthcare systems. Physician faculty compensation models affect the success of a healthcare organization as well as the performance and satisfaction of its faculty. Through literature reviews, interviews, and surveys, this essay provides background on faculty compensation models, analyzes the current University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Division of General Internal Medicine Faculty Compensation Model, and proposes a recommendation for consideration. Physicians and advanced practice providers are the core of performance, safety, quality, and patient satisfaction, making it crucial for there to be mutual agreement on compensation and standards between faculty and their health systems. Having a fair and effective faculty compensation model is therefore directly related to patient care, making this topic of public health significance.
