Mobility Characteristics of U.S. Medical School Faculty.
Anderson, Philip W.; Larson, Thomas A.
Even though each medical school has its own unique qualities that distinguish it from another, differences can be examined in terms of faculty and school characteristics. Two general questions are pursued in the present report: (1) What are the mobility patterns of medical school faculty members as revealed through an analysis of faculty characteristics? (2) What are the mobility patterns of medical school faculty members as revealed through an analysis of institutional characteristics? To answer these questions medical school faculty are divided into four groups--new hires; transfers; stayers, and leavers--on the basis of mobility status. Medical school faculty in the four mobility status groups are then compared in terms of the following characteristics: age, sex, country of training, academic rank, nature of employment. Also included are two characteristics of the medical schools--ownership and age. (Author/KE)
