National Institutes of Health (DHEW), Bethesda, MD. Resources Analysis Branch.
This summary report of staffing patterns in 6 medical schools established between 1952 and 1960 is the first phase of a proposed study of biomedical staffing requirements in institutions of higher education, 1965-1975. The 6 schools are: the University of Miami, Albert Einstein College of medicine at Yeshiva University, the University of Florida, the New Jersey College of Medicine (Seton Hall), the University of Kentucky, and the University of West Virginia. Chapter I discusses the purpose of the report. Chapter II presents summary statistics of the 6 schools and focuses on: (1) the admission of the first class; (2) graduation of first class; (3) change between admission and graduation of first class; (4) school status in 1964-65; and (5) comparative resources data with all medical schools. For each focus quantitative measures and ratios were obtained for: faculty, students, student/faculty ratios, beds, research space, research and training support, and ratios of research space, beds, and research and training support per faculty member. Chapter III discusses the major factors influencing faculty staffing patterns and program development, such as the appointment of a Dean, service responsibilities, research facilities, and availability of funds. Chapter IV deals with sources of support for faculty salaries; Chapter V considers faculty recruitment; and Chapter VI covers faculty shortage areas. (AF)
