October 4, 2022

The Physician Performance Management Series, offered as a collaboration between L&D and Physician Services, was created to provide a comprehensive overview of the physician performance review cycle. The series will offer resources for effective and continuous performance management while aiming to foster connection with the UPMC Mission/Vision/Values. This year’s content was updated to include information on the University e-FPE process and an introduction on Talent Reviews and Succession Planning for physicians.

Session 3: Performance Evaluations and Talent Management The final session will focus on the performance evaluation both from the perspective of the physician and the leader. This will include discussion about self-evaluations and preparing and conducting performance evaluations. The series will conclude with an introduction to Talent Reviews and Succession Planning.
