I don’t think anyone gets paid for them that I know of. You certainly can’t be paid for them if you’re claiming CME credit.

Unless you are a contractor or adjunct faculty at an institution who needs you for your specialty and have hired you to serve that function with indicated compensation; you will not be paid for tumour boards.

You are free however to stand up during the middle of a deep clinical discussion at a tumour board and shout “when do we get paid for this?!?”. The blank stares and puzzled looks will be almost as good as compensation!

You should be doing time studies for all of your Part A activities. The hours should be the basis for your compensation.

I agree with Dave. It a component of part A time study. Our negotiation of part A includes this as one of the activities.
Do we get paid per hour for this or any institutional activity, no.
It is part of our monthly fee.

I universally do nothing I dont get paid for. Like nothing. If I show up and merely pass gas at a conference, I get paid.
