Descriptive Study of Salaried Medical School Faculty.
Tabular and descriptive data are offered on the salaried medical school faculty, including information on their academic status, demographic characteristics, and educational background. The study includes not only an analysis of current faculty composition and characteristics and institutional differences in faculty, but also an analysis of the changes in these parameters from 1970-71. The major instrument used was the Salaried Medical Faculty Questionnaire, essentially biographical in nature and consisting of 298 elements. In the 1973-74 school year, there were an estimated 26,582 salaried faculty members employed at the 77 U.S. medical schools selected for the study. Data are reported for: primary speciality in the clinical sciences; full time teachers; participation in NIH training grants; completion of internships and residencies; private practice experience; female representation on faculty; minority group representation; foreign trained personnel representation; and percentages of newly hired faculty.
