Stephen Thank you for highlighting these issues. I think for all of us being accountable for our time and income we earn is something that Dept should know. We had all asked for transparency around issue of finances and this is linked to this. I think it is not recognized by all in faculty that there are multiple potential sources of income for some in Dept. I think it very reasonable that we should have a discussion about this and what should and should not "count" as our Faculty income. Related to this is what sustainable mechanisms do we have to fund activities of the dept as a whole and for divions. I think it highly unusual here that nearly all monies flow straight to physicians without some kind of collective tithe that would enable us to pay for things that would enhance skills and training of faculty and to make dept a more interesting place to work (e.g. getting top notch speakers for Grand Rounds etc). For example GIM division has no source of revenue at all as far as I can tell & I think all divisions should be able to have the opportunity to use some resources to decide how they'd like to benefit their own members as well as Departmental benefits. My personal feeling is that all of us should contribute something to this (not just high earners) but that we should have discussion about caps - should there be a hard or soft cap? Should a tithe be linked with all earnings and / or graded up if earning over specialty approved caps? Look forward to hearing responses.
