This article describes the challenge of designing an incentive-based compensation program for a large group of academic pediatricians in the Division of General Pediatrics at the University of Michigan Health System. The program is based on an incentive system that measures performance in clinical care, education and research. Faculty members' salaries arise from five components: base, clinical incentive, academic supplement, administrative differential and teaching credit.
