Key Indicators in Academic Medicine (KIAMs), a new feature in Academic Medicine, are intended to substantially inform teaching hospitals and medical schools on those metrics that may best gauge their health, including the performance of units and programs within these organizations. Ultimately, KIAMs may promote effective growth and development in a dynamic clinical, training, and research environment. At the outset of this laudable feature, the authors of this perspective offer a suggested framework for analyzing key indicators with the goal of enhancing the usefulness of the published KIAMs. They outline their view of pitfalls and opportunities in the development of key indicators and suggest strategies. The authors close by suggesting how this feature could form the framework for a comprehensive national project.
