Deadline Extended to Nov. 14: Participate in U-M vs. OSU Challenge and Help AAFP Build Career Dashboard 

It’s football season and with the infamous Ohio State University (OSU) vs. University of Michigan game just two weeks away, MAFP and the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians have arranged a rivalry challenge to see which state chapter can have the most members complete the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) career benchmark dashboard survey. 

MAFP currently has an 8% survey response rate, let’s get those numbers up! 

You have the chance to not only help the AAFP build a career benchmark dashboard that will make it easier for the AAFP to advocate to stakeholders on the value of family medicine, but to also beat the team up north!

Please take 5-10 minutes to complete an important, anonymous survey which will help the AAFP create an insightful dashboard of relevant, real data to power family physicians’ contract negotiations and drive future career decisions.

The deadline has been extended and the survey now closes Tuesday, Nov. 14.  

Data from the survey will be used to create the first-ever family medicine career benchmark dashboard. Members will be able to filter the data by state, gender, practice setting, or other factors to gauge how their compensation and work environment measure up. The transparency this tool will offer can support members in comparing career options, drive success in salary and contract negotiations, and uncover bias and discrimination in compensation.

In addition to providing a valuable member resource, updates to the dashboard will yield an ongoing stream of aggregated data to use when calling on the United States Congress, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and commercial insurers.

Ultimately, the goal is to give the AAFP and state chapters the data we need to create and implement primary care payment models that promote comprehensiveness and continuity, are agnostic to the modality of care, and reduce administrative burden.

The dashboard can be a powerful resource for members ONLY if thousands of family physicians respond to the anonymous survey from every state and every type of community. Please take 5-10 minutes to complete the survey by Tuesday, Nov. 14. 

With your support, this tool can augment the progress we have made to advance family medicine and build a better healthcare system anchored by primary care.
