HISTORY The foundations of America’s fifth oldest medical school date back to 1789, when Baltimore physicians organized the Medical Society of Baltimore. The society’s mission was to train young doctors and bring validation to a profession greatly diminished by the Revolutionary War. The Medical Society of Baltimore’s founders tutored young students in the physicians’ homes, lecturing on anatomy, surgery and chemistry. There were no stethoscopes, thermometers, hypodermic needles, antiseptics or anesthesia, and operations were often performed using kitchen knives. Faced with strong citizen protest against anatomical dissection, the physician-teachers petitioned the Maryland state legislature to establish a permanent college of medicine, protected by the law. In 1807, the request was approved under a legislative act entitled “An Act for Founding a Medical College in the City or Precincts of Baltimore for the Instruction of Students in the Different Branches of Medicine.” The charter incorporated the College of Medicine of Maryland and granted permission to hold a lottery to raise money for a home for the fledgling school. The medical school was re-chartered in 1812 as the University of Maryland, and the regents were given authority to add the Schools of Law, Arts and Sciences and Divinity. Thus, the School of Medicine earned the unique distinction among its peers as the only medical school to be the founding school of a university system. From the beginning, there has been a strong emphasis on bedside teaching. The first class of students received clinical instruction at the Baltimore Almshouse, a workhouse and infirmary for the poor. Dr. John Beale Davidge, a native Marylander and a physician trained in Scotland, became the first dean and took the chair in surgery. Dr. James Cocke held the chair in anatomy and physiology; Mr. James Shaw, the chair in chemistry; and Dr. Nathaniel Potter, the chair of theory and practice of medicine. Davidge, Shaw and Cocke purchased land for the school from John Eager Howard, a Revolutionary War hero and former Maryland governor. In 1810, the School of Medicine graduated its first class, awarding the degree of Doctor of Medicine. Shortly thereafter, Dr. John Crawford, the first man to vaccinate Baltimoreans against smallpox, donated his personal library to the School, creating the nucleus of the first medical college library in America. In 1812, with money raised by the faculty, Davidge Hall was erected at Lombard and Greene streets where, according to legend, it afforded views of the bombardment of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. The oldest medical school building in North America still in use for medical education, Davidge Hall houses two expansive circular amphitheaters, one atop the other, with no visible means of support for the upper hall, which was an engineering marvel in the early 1800s. Dissecting cubbyholes, secret stairways, and hidden exits afforded students and their professors safe passage from the angry mobs that opposed the use of cadavers as teaching tools. Davidge Hall was designated a state historical site by the Maryland Historical Society in 1970, and entered on the National Register of Historic Sites in 1974. 3
  7. 7. Davidge Hall was completely renovated in the early 1980s, and in 1998 was designated a National Historic Landmark by the US Department of the Interior. Today, its presence stands as a symbolic reminder of American medical education at the beginning of the 19th century. In 1823, Maryland became the first medical school in the country to build its own teaching hospital for clinical instruction, which housed the site of the first intramural residency program. Patients were admitted for a weekly fee of $3. The infirmary was augmented in 1897 with the opening of the University Hospital which, nearly a century later, would become a private, not-for-profit corporation known as the University of Maryland Medical System. The School introduced the first preventive medicine course in 1833. A little more than 10 years later, Dr. David Stewart, the first professor of pharmacy in America, began lecturing at the University. In 1848, recognizing the value of the basic sciences in the undergraduate curriculum, Maryland became the first school to require anatomical dissection and provided the first advocacy of biopsy and microscopic diagnosis of malignancy. The School also pioneered the teaching of the diseases of women as a separate subject from obstetrics, established the first clinic for the diseases of children, and initiated early teaching activities in both of these medical specialties. Maryland was also the first school to establish a teaching position for diseases of the eye and ear. Alumni were very proud of their medical school and were eager to support it. They organized the Medical Alumni Association of the University of Maryland in 1875, which is today the oldest independent medical alumni association in the United States. Their quarterly magazine - Bulletin - is the oldest medical alumni publication in America. It was not until 1899 that the three-year medical program, at a total fee of $305, became mandatory for medical students. The first female medical student, Teresa Ora Snaith, graduated from the School of Medicine in 1923, and, in 1951, Donald Stewart and Roderick Charles enrolled as the School’s first African-American students. There was tremendous growth nationally in medical school facilities during the second half of the 20th century, and the University of Maryland was no exception. In 1960, the School relocated most of its programs to the six-story Howard Hall, initiating a series of renovations and new building construction that would span nearly three decades. Following the construction of the new Bressler Research Building and the Medical School Teaching Facility in the late 1970s, the School established the University of Maryland Cancer Center in 1982. A few years later the state-of-the-art R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center was opened. The early ‘90s marked the addition of the Allied Health Building, the Biomedical Research Facility and Health Sciences Facility I. And in 2003, Health Sciences Facility II, a world-class state-of-the-art biomedical research facility, was opened. Throughout its illustrious history, the School of Medicine’s curriculum has remained at the forefront of American medical education. In 1994, the curriculum was revised significantly to provide students with broad exposure to medicine by emphasizing a problem-based approach to medical education. Curriculum reform included replacing microscopes with laptop computers, reducing the number of lectures, increasing the number of small group discussions, adding more ambulatory education, and increasing clinical relevance of the basic sciences. An orientation for new faculty was begun in 1995, and a symbolic White Coat Ceremony for freshmen medical students was initiated in 1997, and in 2002 the first annual Student Clinician Ceremony was held to emphasize humanism as students learn to interact with patients in their third year of medical school. Today, the University of Maryland School of Medicine is a comprehensive academic health center with 23 departments, six programs and five organized research centers that combine medical education, 4
  8. 8. biomedical research, patient care and community service. Together, the School of Medicine and University of Maryland Medical System educate and train more than half of Maryland’s practicing physicians. As the University of Maryland School of Medicine’s reputation continues to expand into the new century, its rich history of excellence and leadership in medical education remains constant. 5

  24. 24. CENTER FOR RESEARCH ON AGING Co-Directors Andrew P. Goldberg, MD Jay S. Magaziner, PhD, MSHyg The Center for Research on Aging was established in the School of Medicine in 1998. The Center coordinates research and research training in those areas of gerontology which transcend traditional disciplinary lines and are amenable to an interdisciplinary approach to critical issues in aging research. It interfaces with University of Maryland Baltimore’s (UMB) existing efforts in gerontology and geriatric medicine to develop research, educational and clinical programs which nurture and expand research and research funding in aging. The goal of the Center is to enhance involvement and collaboration among faculty at the UMB professional schools to address critical issues in gerontology. The conduct of interdisciplinary research and research training in gerontology has expanded through collaborations among investigators at UMB and University of Maryland Baltimore County. The goals of the Center are accomplished by: 1) promoting interdisciplinary research in aging among faculty with similar interests; 2) establishing core facilities and populations for the conduct of interdisciplinary research and research training in aging; 3) identifying potential funding sources for aging research; and 4) providing support for pilot studies in aging research by trainees and junior faculty. Membership in the Center for Research on Aging consists of faculty at the two UM campuses, and other members of academic institutions who have major professional interests in aging research and are involved in collaborative research in gerontology and geriatrics at UMB and affiliated campuses. The Center sponsors a lecture series and an annual symposium during the academic year. The Center for Research on Aging Web address is: http://medschool.umaryland.edu/gerontology.asp CENTER FOR VACCINE DEVELOPMENT Director Myron M. Levine, MD, DTPH The Center for Vaccine Development (CVD) is dedicated to research, training, clinical consultation and public health consultation in the broad field of vaccinology. CVD faculty hold primary appointments in the departments of medicine, pediatrics, or microbiology and immunology. The CVD has four primary missions. The first is to foster and carry out superior, state-of-the-art, peer reviewed, innovative, multidisciplinary research on all aspects of vaccinology including: • Basic research (e.g., pathogenesis; engineering of vaccine candidates, fundamental studies of immune response, studies of host-pathogen interaction) • Clinical research (e.g., Phase I and II clinical trials assessing the safety, immunogenicity, transmissibility, etc., of vaccine candidates in pediatric, young adult, geriatric and special risk populations; intensive measurement of serum, mucosal and cell-mediated immune responses) 21
  25. 25. • Epidemiologic research and field studies (e.g., large-scale, randomized, controlled field trials to assess vaccine efficacy and effectiveness; serosurveys; prevalence surveys of pathogen carriage cohort studies quantifying the occurrence and relative importance of known and newly-discovered pathogens). This dominant mission of the CVD requires a multidisciplinary approach to the development and testing of new and improved vaccines. In total, 24 full and four adjunct faculty (19 MD, 6 PhD, 3 MD/PhD) and approximately 70 staff and students work in the Baltimore complex. Approximately 90% of their salary support comes from competitive grants and research contracts, especially from the NIH which, in fiscal year 2000, awarded CVD investigators over $20 million in grants and contracts. Field research is carried out at several sites around the world, most recently including Indonesia, Mali and Malawi. Of particular importance is CVD-Chile, a research group that has undertaken epidemiologic and clinical research in Santiago, Chile, for more than 20 years. The second mission of the CVD is to train medical and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and visiting scientists within the broad discipline of vaccinology. The CVD’s third mission is to provide consultations in the area of clinical vaccinology, advice on immunizations for infants and children, travelers, pregnant women, and immunocompromised hosts, especially through our Traveler’s Health Service, an outpatient clinic. Finally, the CVD provides expert consultantships or committee membership to national and international agencies (e.g., National Institutes of Health, Food and Drug Administration, World Health Organization), foreign Ministries of Health and industry. The Center for Vaccine Development Web address is: http://medschool.umaryland.edu/CVD/ MUCOSAL BIOLOGY RESEARCH CENTER Director Alessio Fasano, MD Co-Directors Simeon Goldblum, M.D. Jeffrey Hasday, M.D. The paramount goal of the Mucosal Biology Research Center (MBRC) at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is to create a comprehensive multidisciplinary research center focused on basic and translational research approaches to mucosal barrier functions in health and disease. This program incorporates the collective experience of successful clinicians and basic scientists engaged in research activities focused on cell biology, mucosal immunology, infectious diseases, inflammatory processes, drug and antigen delivery, trauma and wound repair, to provide a strong environment for facilitating new research opportunities, a unique training setting, and a valuable resource for recruiting new faculty members of the highest quality. The recent discoveries concerning the molecular basis of human diseases, the completion of the human genome project, the new frontiers offered by disciplines such as proteomics, and the increased challenges imposed by recent political and social events related to bioterrorism, all provide a rationale for the creation of an integrated organized research center that can more effectively tackle these issues. 22
  26. 26. The central objective of the MBRC is to offer an in-depth, comprehensive multidisciplinary clinical and basic research facility that brings together researchers from across campus that have expertise in mucosal biology, specifically relevant to diseases of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts.

MEMBERSHIP - The dean serves as chair of the School of Medicine Council. Membership is comprised of all department chairs, directors of all programs, elected representatives from each department (members & alternates), student representatives, two representatives from the Medical Alumni Association and two appointed assistant/associate deans. The term of office for an elected departmental representative is two (2) years. MEMBERS AND ALTERNATES - Each elected member has an alternate who attends meetings in the event the member is unable to be present. If both the member and alternate are present, then only the member is eligible to vote on an issue. Every department/program should have representation at each Council meeting and if neither the member nor the alternate is able to attend, then the department chair/program director should be informed. If the department chair/program director is unable to attend a Council meeting, a substitute may be selected to attend and vote in the chair’s absence. In the event an elected faculty member of the Council is unable to complete his/her term of office, then the alternate will serve out that term and the department chair/program director will appoint another alternate. MEETINGS - Council meetings are an open forum and all School of Medicine faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend. There are ten regularly scheduled monthly meetings held during the academic year, with the exception of July and August. Representatives should encourage other faculty in the department/program to attend and also apprise them of information discussed and shared at Council meetings.

  36. 36. FACULTY ASSEMBLY The Faculty Assembly is a forum for faculty discussion on issues relevant to the faculty. The Faculty Assembly acts as an advisory body to the dean and the School of Medicine Council. Acting Chair Lindsey Grossman, MD Professor, Pediatrics FACULTY ASSEMBLY OF THE SCHOOL OF MEDICINE BY-LAWS A. Purpose 1. To serve as the faculty shared governance body of the School of Medicine and as an independent voice of the faculty of the School of Medicine in accordance with the Board of Regents principles on shared governance that state: • Final authority and responsibility for the welfare of the USM and its institutions rests with the Board of Regents. The Board may delegate to the Chancellor and the Presidents portions of that authority for the purpose of assuring the effective management of the System and its institutions. • Shared governance procedures and principles apply at all levels within the USM. • Shared governance requires informed participation and collaboration by faculty, students, staff, and administrators. • Faculty, staff, and students shall have opportunities to participate, appropriate to their special knowledge and expertise, in decisions that relate to: o Mission and budget priorities for the University System of Maryland and its constituent institutions o Curriculum, course content, and instruction; o Research; o Appointment, promotion, and tenure of all faculty members and the development of policies that affect faculty welfare generally; o Development of human resources policies and procedures for exempt and non-exempt staff; o Selection and appointment of administrators; o Issues that affect the ability of students to complete their education; and o Other issues that arise from time to time that affect the overall welfare of the USM and/or its institutions. • While some members of shared governance bodies may be appointed, the substantial majority should be elected by their constituencies. Such bodies should elect their own presiding officers. 2. To provide advice to the Dean of the School of Medicine in the form of information, analysis, or opinion on issues affecting the School of Medicine and its faculty B. The Membership 1.The Full Faculty Assembly shall consist of the members of the University of Maryland School of Medicine Faculty who hold 50% time or greater academic appointments at the rank of 33
  37. 37. instructor or above. Geographic fulltime appointees are members. Visiting faculty are not members. 2.A Representative Faculty Assembly (hereafter referred to as the Representative Assembly) shall be formed to deliberate and formulate resolutions or positions to be presented to the Dean on behalf of the Full Faculty Assembly. C. The Representative Faculty Assembly 1. The Representative Assembly shall be a body of approximately 50 departmentally elected representatives of the eligible School of Medicine Faculty. Eligible faculty are those Full Assembly members with a primary appointment in a School of Medicine Department and not having “Dean” in their title. Any faculty member standing for election to the Representative Assembly must disclose any conflicts of interest and provide assurance that such conflicts will not impair his/her independence. 2. Each Department shall elect its representative(s) to fill open seats on the Representative Assembly by secret ballot. They may choose to elect up to two alternates, as well, to fill-in when an elected representative cannot attend a meeting due to an unavoidable circumstance. Except for the first election, they shall serve for terms of 3 years. The Elections Committee of the Faculty Assembly shall oversee the elections process. 3. To achieve a Representative Assembly of approximately 50 members, each department shall be entitled to one representative for every 25 eligible faculty who hold their primary appointments within that department. From 1-25 eligible faculty, a department will qualify for 1 representative, from 26-50 it would have 2, from 51-75 it would have 3, and so forth. 4. To ensure continuity, elections will be staggered so that only approximately one third of the Faculty Assembly representatives will be replaced in any year. To achieve this staggering, the duration of terms shall vary in the first election such that approximately equal numbers of representatives will be elected for 1, 2, and 3 year terms. 5. Nominations of candidates to fill departmental seats on the Representative Assembly shall be made and seconded by Faculty Assembly Members at a regular departmental faculty meeting. A slate should include at least two candidates for each seat. 6. The elected representatives shall be the top vote recipients in a departmental election of Faculty Assembly Members held during the 1st week of June. Ties shall be decided in a runoff election. 7. Election results shall be tallied electronically or by departmental members of the Faculty Assembly designated by the Elections Committee of the Assembly. The designees will certify the election on behalf of the election committee and will report the certified results to the department and to the Election Committee. D. Duties and Roles of the Representative Assembly 1. Attend all scheduled meetings of the Representative Assembly. Departments may elect a maximum of two alternate representatives to fill-in when an elected representative cannot attend a meeting due to an unavoidable circumstance. 2. At regular meetings of the Representative Assembly, representatives shall receive and discuss information and develop recommendations on any issues of importance to the University and the School of Medicine. 3. Representatives shall have the right to vote on all proposed actions or positions. 4. To initiate by resolution any measure the Faculty Assembly deems to be in the best interest of the School of Medicine for presentation to the Dean of the School of Medicine. 5. Collaborate with the administration in drafting policy or initiating changes in SOM policy that require approval of a majority of the faculty in order to be enacted. 34
  38. 38. E. Officers of the Faculty Assembly 1. The Faculty Assembly Officers shall consist of the Chair, Vice-chair and Secretary. Candidates for office must be members of the Representative Assembly who have at least one year of their term remaining. Because of their requirement as administrators to support all enacted policies of the University, department chairs are deemed to have a conflict of interest. Therefore, while they may be elected to the Representative Assembly, they are excluded from holding office in the Representative Assembly. Except for the first election, members shall be eligible to stand for election as Officers at the end of their first or second year(s) on the Representative Assembly. For the first election all members will be eligible to run. 2. Officers shall be elected by a majority of the votes cast by the Representative Assembly Members in a secret ballot. Except for the first election, the election will be held during the first week of June. The first election of Officers shall be held within one month of time the first Representative Assembly is seated. 3. Except for the first election, the term of all officers shall be 1 year and shall begin on July 1st of each year. An officer may serve for a maximum of 2 consecutive terms in the same office. For the first election, the Officers will serve until the next July 1st . 4. Except for the initial election, nominations for officers shall be received in May and a slate with at least two candidates for each office or seat shall be submitted to the Elections Committee by May 15th. All candidates must submit their signed agreement to be nominated and to serve if elected. For the initial election, nominations shall be submitted at the first post-ratification meeting of the new Representative Assembly. Until such time the leadership elected prior to the bylaws being ratified shall remain in place. 5. If an office is vacated before the term is completed, the next highest officer will complete the term. The Vice-Chair replaces the Chair, and the Secretary replaces the Vice-Chair. If the Secretary position is vacated, it shall be filled by vote of the membership of the Representative Assembly. F. Duties of the Officers of the Faculty Assembly 1. The Chair shall have the duties of administering the policies of the Faculty Assembly, overseeing and facilitating all activities, as well as presiding at all meetings of the Full Faculty Assembly and the Representative Assembly. 2. The Chair shall appoint an initial Ad Hoc Elections Committee of the Faculty Assembly consisting of 5 members. Three members shall be designated to serve for an initial period of 1 year and two shall be designated to serve for 2 years. 3. The Vice-Chair shall assist the Chair in such tasks as may be delegated by the Chair. In the absence of the Chair, the Vice-Chair shall preside over meetings of the Full Faculty Assembly and the Representative Assembly. 4. The Secretary shall arrange for preparing and distributing the agenda, as well as for taking and distributing of minutes of all proceedings of the Full and Representative Assembly; for compiling and indexing the measures formally adopted; and for such other tasks as designated by the Chair. The Secretary shall receive and maintain the complete and up-to-date electronic mail directory of the membership. G. Faculty Assembly Committees 1. The Ad Hoc Elections Committee shall become a Standing Elections Committee when The Faculty Assembly holds elections to replace ad hoc members as their terms expire. In May of each year, an election will be held to replace members whose terms are about to expire. Elected members of the Elections Committee will serve for two years and will oversee and validate all elections and votes of the Representative Assembly. Persons elected to the Elections Committee 35
  39. 39. must be members of the Representative Assembly who have at least two years remaining in their terms. 2. The Faculty Assembly may establish other standing committees and special ad hoc committees as may be appropriate for the performance of its functions. The membership of committees shall be determined in such a manner as the Representative Assembly may decide. When the need arises for prompt action, the Chair may nominate or appoint members to committees, subject to revisions by the full Representative Assembly. Members of committees other than the Elections Committee must be members of the Full Faculty Assembly, but need not be members of the Representative Assembly. H. Duties of Elections Committee 1. The Elections Committee shall oversee and validate the election of members of the Representative Assembly as well as Officers of the Faculty Assembly. At least one member of the Elections Committee not standing for re-election will oversee and certify the annual election of new Elections Committee members. Finally, the Elections committee will oversee and validate the election of the School of Medicine representatives to the UMB Faculty Senate. 2. The Election Committee shall receive nominations for Committees, Offices and members at least two weeks before the election. All candidates must agree to run and to serve if elected. 3. Voting shall be by secret ballot. All votes must be submitted by electronic or written signature to insure that each eligible voter casts only one vote. Voting will be completed by the end of the first week in June. 4. The Elections Committee, with such additional assistance as it deems necessary, will tally the votes and publish the results of the election by the end of the third week in June. I. Meetings 1. The Representative Assembly shall hold a minimum of 4 regular meetings each year. The actual number of meetings shall be designated by the Representative Assembly. Unscheduled meetings may be called by the Chair, or by a poll of the Representative Assembly members. Except for meetings or parts of meetings deemed in executive session, all meetings of the Representative Assembly shall be open to eligible faculty, but only elected representatives may vote on an issue 2. In addition, there will be a minimum of 2 meetings of the Full Faculty Assembly where all members are encouraged to participate. The purpose of these meetings is to provide a forum for the Full Assembly to be updated on the activities of the Representative Assembly, and where the full membership can provide direct input into the deliberative process. 3. The Chair shall, in consultation with the other Officers and Representatives, develop and prioritize the agenda items for all meetings of the Full or Representative Assembly. Copies of this agenda will be provided electronically to all representatives at least 5 days before a meeting, or as much in advance as possible for a meeting called on short notice. In addition, time should be allotted in each meeting for discussion of new business. 4. Any member of the Full Faculty Assembly may request that an issue be placed on the agenda, but the final agenda shall be determined by the Chair, in consultation with the other Officers and members of the Representative Assembly. However, if a petition is presented by at least 10 members of the Representative Assembly or 25 Members of the Full Assembly to place an item on the agenda, that item must be considered on the agenda of the next meeting. 5. A quorum shall be met if 51% of the Representative Assembly Members are in attendance at a meeting. An affirmative vote of a majority of the representatives present and voting shall be necessary to adopt any motion or take any other action. Procedures not otherwise regulated by these Bylaws shall be in accordance with the latest edition of Roberts Rules of Order. The Chair’s rulings on points of procedure are final. 36
  40. 40. J. Adoption and Amendment of these Bylaws 1. The Faculty Assembly alone has the right to adopt and amend these bylaws. The content of and any changes to these bylaws shall be approved by the Dean and the Campus President. These bylaws take effect if they are adopted by a majority of the eligible faculty members casting votes in a general election with at least 200-faculty voting. 2. To make a formal proposal to amend these bylaws, a petition carrying the signatures of 25 members of the Representative Assembly must be presented to the Chair. Thereafter, the Chair shall circulate the petition to all representatives and place it on the agenda as a resolution for discussion at the next regular meeting of the Representative Assembly. 3. If the resolution is adopted by at least a two-thirds majority of those representatives present at the meeting, the proposed amendment must be ratified by at least a two-thirds majority of the eligible faculty members casting votes in a general election with at least 200 members voting. 4. It is permissible, after ratification, to move those parts of the by-laws that pertain only to initiating procedures, e.g., the first elections, to a separate addendum provided that the meaning of the items is not altered. Thus, the by-laws will not be burdened by obsolete references to special start-up procedures. Bylaws passed 9/13/2002 37
  41. 41. EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OF THE SCHOOL OF MEDICINE COUNCIL The Executive Committee is a special committee of the School of Medicine Council.

  50. 50. UNIVERSITY PHYSICIANS, INC. Faculty Practices of the University of Maryland School of Medicine Overview University Physicians, Inc. (UPI) coordinates and supports the clinical activities of the University of Maryland School of Medicine. It is a separate non-profit, tax-exempt entity. UPI provides administrative support in areas such as business development and payer contracting, finance, human resources, information technology, compliance, legal affairs, practice operations and reimbursement management. UPI also owns and manages two practice office facilities, the University of Maryland Professional Building at 419 W. Redwood Street and the Frenkil Building at 16 S. Eutaw Street, and it leases and manages a third location used primarily for administrative purposes. UPI is directed by a Board of Trustees, which consists of the dean and the department chairs of the clinical departments of the school. The dean also serves as president of UPI. The executive director of UPI is an ex-officio trustee. Clinical activities of the faculty of the school take place as part of the Medical Service Plan, approved by the Board of Regents of the University of Maryland. This faculty practice plan includes UPI as the coordinating corporation and separate, tax-exempt professional associations representing the respective clinical departments. For example, faculty anesthesiologists practice within University of Maryland Anesthesiology Associates, P.A. Our faculty practices are sometimes referred to collectively as University Physicians or UPI. University Physicians currently includes 19 professional corporations that represent distinguished physicians in over 40 specialties and subspecialties. Our physicians’ clinical schedules accommodate approximately 600,000 patient visits per year, and we produce revenues in excess of $105 million. Roles and Responsibilities: Finance Committee, Clinical Affairs Advisory Committee and Compliance Committee The following is a delineation of the roles and responsibilities of three-major School of Medicine/ University Physicians operating committees. These committees play important advisory and consultative roles to the School of Medicine and assist the Dean in maintaining the operational and financial integrity of the School of Medicine programs. This document will be the working document to define the roles of the Fiscal Affairs Advisory Committee (FAAC), the UPI Finance and Audit Committee (FAC) and the Clinical Affairs Advisory Committee (CAAC). 47
  51. 51. Fiscal Affairs Advisory Committee (FAAC) - The FAAC is a University of Maryland School of Medicine committee that advises the dean of the School of Medicine on fiscal affairs. The FAAC members are appointed by the dean. The FAAC has a direct reporting relationship to the dean. The associate dean for Clinical Affairs is an ex-officio member of the FAAC. The FAAC is responsible for the review of the consolidated mission-based budget for each department and its associated PA. The FAAC determines whether the budget is appropriate and realistic, fiscally responsible, and compatible with the School of Medicine mission. If the budget is acceptable and balanced, the FAAC will recommend approval to the dean. If the budget is unacceptable, the FAAC will work with the department until it is acceptable and balanced. In situations where a budget is not balanced, the department must satisfy the FAAC that appropriate actions are being taken to finance any deficit and to correct the problem in the future. The FAAC is responsible for the monthly monitoring of fiscal performance and adherence to budgets for each department and its associated PA. The FAAC may also require a contingency plan from a department if there is significant variance from budget or if there is concern at the beginning of a year that a budget is unrealistic. The FAAC is responsible for evaluating the situation when a department and its associated PA demonstrate a significant and undesirable variance to budget. The FAAC will advise the dean about the seriousness of the variance and recommend potential solutions. Once a department plan has been accepted by the dean and instituted by the department, the FAAC will be responsible for monitoring progress. The FAAC is responsible for developing general operating policies for such things as reserve requirements, budget guidelines, performance and productivity measures and mission-based activities and their funding. In addition, it develops general policies for managing problems such as budget shortfalls. These proposed policies are forwarded by the chairman of the FAAC to the dean of the School of Medicine for approval. UPI Finance and Audit Committee - The UPI Finance and Audit Committee is a standing committee under UPI bylaws. It reports to the UPI Board of Directors and its president. The UPI Finance and Audit Committee is responsible for reviewing, approving and recommending action items to the UPI board related to the following areas: • The central UPI budget • Clinical contracting • Management of real estate, loans and investments • Management of accounts receivable to central UPI owed by the various PA’s • Compliance with Medical Service Plan policies Relationship Between the FAAC and UPI Finance and Audit Committee • The chair of the FAAC is an ex-officio member of the UPI Finance and Audit Committee • The chair of the UPI Finance and Audit Committee is an ex-officio member of the FAAC Clinical Affairs Advisory Committee - A Clinical Affairs Advisory Committee of UPI (CAAC) was created to provide direction and oversight to the clinical operations of the clinical enterprise of the School of Medicine. It is this committee’s responsibility to ensure that the practices comprising the faculty practice plan function at the optimum level. The CAAC is chaired by the associate dean for Clinical Affairs. Membership is determined by the dean, School of Medicine. The chair of the committee reports to the dean. The Clinical Affairs Advisory Committee plays an active advisory and oversight role as defined by the dean/associate dean. The committee monitors operating performance for each of the practices according to standards that have been agreed upon by the 48
  52. 52. associate dean and UPI board. Plans for new business ventures impacting other groups or the hospital are brought to the committee for review and subsequent recommendation to the associate dean. The committee assists the associate dean in evaluating new business opportunities, including mergers and acquisitions. The committee also provides advice to the associate dean and to the board regarding strategic positioning of UPI and its associated groups. The committee has the following responsibilities: 1. Lead the evolution of the medical school clinical enterprise into a more integrated group practice. 2. Develop and enforce operating and financial performance standards for each of the groups within the faculty practice plan. 3. Development and enforcement of standards of patient service for the group. 4. Defining the administrative and clinical infrastructure requirements to support the group practice. 5. Provide recommendations to the associate dean/UPI president relative to the strategic positioning and business priorities of the school of medicine clinical enterprise. 6. Reviewing new business ventures proposed by the PAs. Relationship to FAAC - The chair of the FAAC is an ex-officio member of the CAAC. UPI Compliance Committee - The Compliance Committee is a standing committee of the UPI board. It was established in recognition of the increasing complexity of compliance standards and requirements (including billing and documentation rules) applicable to our clinical practice groups, and in order to help ensure ongoing, timely oversight and review of the compliance initiatives and programs of UPI and the clinical practice groups. The Committee serves as liaison to the board with regard to regulatory compliance issues, it provides advice and recommendations to the UPI Compliance Office and the board on compliance issues, programs, policies and procedures, and it recommends to the board appropriate or necessary changes to the UPI compliance plan. The Committee is composed of members of the board, other members of the faculty, and administrative staff of the professional associations and UPI. The UPI chief compliance officer is an ex officio member of the Committee. UNIVERSITY PHYSICIANS, INC. COMPLIANCE PROGRAM The University Physicians Compliance Program was established to help ensure that we carry out our clinical practice and related activities within appropriate ethical and legal standards, in conformance with applicable federal and state law, government and/or private payer health care program requirements, as well as University Physicians’ compliance and business policies. It is essential that each of us carries out our daily activities within this context, and that we are proactive in obtaining guidance and in identifying and resolving issues or situations that may not be compliant. The University Physicians Compliance Plan is a critical component of our overall compliance program. It provides guidance on a broad range of issues, including coding, billing and documentation, conflicts of interest, patient confidentiality, records retention, contracts and business relationships, waivers of payments, and more. More detailed compliance policies have also been established to provide more detail in a number of these areas. The UPI Compliance Office is responsible for implementation of the compliance program. It serves as a central resource for furnishing information and guidance to our professional associations concerning applicable federal and state statutes, regulations and other guidance or policies. The Compliance Office focuses significant attention on coding, documentation and billing compliance rules, and it periodically reviews these areas in each 49
  53. 53. practice group. Education and training is also provided to all clinicians and staff on our program requirements and relevant compliance matters. Because of our practice plan structure, each professional association is ultimately responsible for compliance of its faculty and staff. Each practice group has an administrative compliance liaison and a physician compliance liaison. The job of the compliance liaisons is to serve as a link with the Compliance Office and to lead the compliance efforts within the practice group. The Compliance Office maintains an intranet website with information about our program, contacts, documents and additional resources at http://intranet.upi.umaryland.edu/compliance/.
