The Practice Plan generated $3.4 million of Dean's Fund contributions for plan year 2002, which is approximately $100,000 more than the amount generated in 2001. Seventy-one percent of these funds supported the Dean's Office, which includes Administration, Admissions, Student Affairs, Faculty Affairs, Curriculum, Faculty and Student Advocacy, Financial Affairs, Financial Aid, and Faculty Committee Office. Twenty-nine percent of the funds provided support to various departments of the school. In addition to the Dean's Fund, the faculty, through their departmental practice entities, have contributed an additional $17.5 million to support the academic programs of their respective departments. Dr. Cook reported that during the year, the Dean's Office contracted with Deloitte & Touche to perform agreed-upon procedures to test the compliance of four departments for calendar year 2002. This audit has been done. A preliminary report indicated no significant problems with the four departments audited. A formal report is forthcoming. Revenues generated through the Professional Practice Plan remain a major component of the School of Medicine's budget. The faculty are to be commended for their hard work and for the substantial financial support they provide the school through the Professional Practice Plan.
