The cost of teaching residents outpatient obstetrics and gynecology in a university medical cent.
To quantify the cost of teaching residents ambulatory obstetrics and gynecology, expressed as the difference in revenue generated between a faculty physician practicing as a private practitioner and a faculty physician serving as a resident supervisor.
Outpatient revenue generated by faculty generalists and residents was analyzed.
The net gain in revenue was calculated per half-day session for faculty and residents by subtracting contractual allowances and expenses from gross patient charges.
Net revenue gain per half-day clinical session per year for a faculty member practicing as a private practitioner was compared with that of a faculty member functioning as a supervisor.
The net gain for the faculty supervisor was based on the revenue generated by the residents supervised.
The faculty member serving as a private practitioner generated a net gain per session per year of $23,947.
The faculty member acting as supervisor for two residents per session generated a net gain or loss per session per year of - $9678, - $972, and $15,542 for first-second-and third-year residents, respectively.
This analysis shows that first-year residents are an expense to the practice site, second-year residents are close to breaking even, and third-year residents begin to generate a net gain.
