Stephen, Your blog nicely identifies a critical issue that has been festering within the School of Medicine for years. While SEAMO has brought many positives to Queen’s, I think most would agree that SEAMO’s inability to develop and implement a fair and transparent accountability process that equitably recognizes and rewards all aspects of an academic clinician’s work has been its’ greatest failing. This has not only hindered our ability to take full advantage of the opportunity afforded us by the AFP, but also has negatively impacted on collegiality within and across departments. The issue of professional earnings outside of SEAMO is probably the most contentious and divisive issue that needs to be addressed in our new accountability framework. Many argue that as long as SEAMO deliverables are met, what an individual earns on his or her “own time” should be none of SEAMO’s business. But is that fair to the many faculty members who spend vast amounts of their “own time” doing non-remunerated academic or administrative work that greatly benefits the School of Medicine? Looking forward to the results of your survey! Bill Paterson
