Join the AMA Academic Physicians Section for a live session to learn about Educational Value Units (EVUs), a mechanism that aims to quantify and support the contributions of academic physicians within their institutions. Often overshadowed by relative value units (RVUs), these contributions may be undervalued in the eyes of C-suite leadership accustomed to bottom-line thinking. Join us to discover how implementing EVUs in your institution can serve as a countermeasure to this common misperception.
