Governance and Accountability
Our Commitment to Improving Governance and Accountability at the DFM
In an effort to clarify identified issues around compensation, accountability, fairness, transparency and expectations of faculty roles and responsibilities, the Department of Family Medicine is currently working to review and refresh our Department’s Governance and Accountability environment for all faculty members.
At the end of 2016, a review of the DFM compensation model was initiated by HealthIntelligence Inc. with a report on recommendations provided in March 2017. The results of this report revealed a need for the DFM to better define our roles and function, to update our governance structure and develop an accountability framework. Accordingly, three Working Groups and a Governance and Accountability Steering Committee were established to advise the process.
