Abstract

Study Objectives: To survey academic pediatric emergency medicine (PEM) programs for information on financial compensation and patient care activities of PEM faculty and compare the results to the financial data published by the AAEM, AAAP, and MGMA. Methods: A survey was mailed to program directors requesting information on medical school affiliation, ED census, recruitment, patient care activity and annual income for each academic rank. The survey also included questions on CME benefits, and income adjustment mechanisms/bonus plans for PEM faculty. The survey income data were stratified by program size and geographic region and then compared to income data from the AAMC, AAAP, and MGMA. Results: Of 47 eligible programs, 37 (78.7%) responded, and four were excluded. Mean number of clinical hours per week for academic faculty and clinical faculty were 27.9 ± 3.5 and 32.4 ± 3.9, respectively, (P = 0.000). Clinical appointments in academic departments were offered by 82% of the programs. Mean annual income for all academic ranks was $121,503 ± $15,795, and is nearly $37,000 less than the annual income for academic adult emergency medicine (AEM) faculty. Compared to medium and large programs, small programs are offering higher salaries to recent fellowship graduates (P = 0.004). When income data were stratified by program size or geographic region, no significant difference in average annual income was observed. Bonus or incentive plans were available only in 45.5% of the programs. Conclusion: Direct patient care responsibility of PEM academic faculty has not changed significantly in the past 13 years, despite the availability of clinical appointments within most of the surveyed programs. Our data indicate that the annual income for PEM faculty in academic institutions is significantly less than AEM faculty. No significant difference was observed between programs at the assistant, associate, or full professor level when stratified by size or geographic region. Bonus/incentive plans for exceptional patient care or scholarly activity were available in less than half of the surveyed programs.
