5/3/2 Minimum Funding

Each ranked clinical faculty member was allocated $6,100 [$5,000 plus 22% benefits] for departmental research/scholarly activity, service and professional development activities based on their primary department. These departments include: Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Psychiatry, Surgery, Neurology, Dermatology, Orthopedics, Otolaryngology, Ophthalmology, Urology, Neurosurgery, Radiology, Cardiology and Pathology.

American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) Comparison

This section reflects total wages (University, VA, and Practice Plan) for the entire designated timeframe (USF FTE +VA FTE extrapolated to 1.0 FTE) as compared to AAMC salary benchmarks for Rank and Specialty (25th, 50th, and 75th percentiles). Total wages are calculated by adding University, ASF (Academic Support Fund) and VA Salary numbers. When the faculty memben's total wages are equal to or greater than one of the AAMC benchmark percentiles, that block will be shaded green. If the wages are within 10% of the corresponding percentile, the block will be shaded yellow. If the wages are less than 90% of the corresponding percentile, the block will be shaded red.

Actual Benefits

Includes all components of any state or Practice Plan provided insurance, tuition, and retirement. These components are: Practice Plan Benefits, which are reported from the USFPG HR System (CYBORG) and State Benefits, which are reported from USF Financials (FAST).

PhD Adjustment tracked with MED016 and Programmatic Funding tracked with MED026 are NOT included in this number. Actual Pay Distributed for EVUs are compared to Total EVU + 5/3/2 + SELECT. If the two amounts are within 10% (plus or minus) the block will be shaded Green; if greater than 10% difference (above or below) the block will be shaded Red.

This includes all components of wages the faculty member receives in bi-weekly or monthly paychecks. These components are ASF, ASF Call Pay, ASF Incentive, and ASF Stipend as reported from the USFPG HR System (CYBORG), UCS (University Contracted Salary) as reported from USF Financials (FAST), and VA Salary as reported to USF by the VA. Please note that any salary paid by the Practice Plan is grouped within one of the ASF components.

    • Accrued Estimated Collections are compared to Matched Collections, if greater than or equal to it will be shaded Green, if within 10% below it will be shaded Yellow and if greater than 10% below it will be shaded Red.
  • Matched Collections refers to collections matched to the charges that generated those collections.
  • Actual work relative value units (wRVUs) at previous fiscal year end.

wRVU UHC Comparison

Provider Specialty from the Practice Plan Billing System (IDX)

The University Health Consortium provides data that serves as the wRVU benchmark for our clinicians. This field contains a comparison of wRVU data from the Practice Plan billing system (IDX) and cRVU data from USFPG to the previous year's Annual UHC Benchmarks. The Annualized wRVUs + cRVUs at 1.00 FTE is derived by first adding the Annualized wRVUs and the Annualized cRVUs and then dividing that number by the Total Appointed FTE. The result is then compared to the Annual UHC Benchmarks. If the wRVUs + cRVUs at 1.00 FTE is equal to or greater than the 75th Percentile, it is shaded green. If the wRVUs + cRVUs at 1.00 FTE is within 10% of meeting the 75th Percentile, it is shaded yellow. If the wRVUs + cRVUs at 1.00 FTE is less than 90% of the 75th Percentile it is shaded red. The 25th, 50th, 75th, and 90th benchmark numbers are shaded based on their respective relationships to the wRVUs + cRVUs at 1.00 FTE, using the same logic as described above.
