Jolly, Paul; And Others
Basic statistics on degree distribution, type of employment, training and credentials, responsibilities, distribution of specialties and disciplines, and demographic characteristics of new hire faculty and continuing faculty at U.S. medical schools from 1968-1978 are presented. The emphasis is on faculty who received their first medical school appointment between 1968 and 1978. Five sections focus on: overview (number of faculty, nature of employment, rank distribution, degree distribution, and departmental distribution); demographic characteristics (number of faculty, gender, degree, age, ethnic identification, and citizenship by gender); credentials (education and training, post doctoral awards, and specialties and disciplines); current responsibilities and previous professional activities of new hire faculty; and geographic distribution (number of medical schools, accession of new hires in public and private schools, accession of new hires in new and established schools, new hires and school maturation, research training, regional distribution, and retention of new hire faculty). Statistics include: the total faculty more than doubled over the 11-year period, but a decrease in the number of new hire faculty began in 1976; women faculty constituted an increasing fraction of new faculty; the percent of new hire black faculty decreased while that of new Asian faculty increased; and recruitment of new faculty at individual schools substantially increased. Five appendices are: public and private school listing; definition of terms; appendix of variables; previous and current faculty roster forms; and 9 references. (SM)
