A Fifteen Year Perspective on Dental School Faculty.
Kennedy, James E.
Journal of Dental Education, v59 n5 p578-83 May 1995
Data from a 1994 survey of dental schools (n=39) concerning faculty employment patterns are compared with data from 1980 (n=41) and 1989 (n=40) surveys. Information gathered on tenure status of clinical faculty, tenured and nontenured faculty turnover rates, reasons for faculty leaving an institution, tenure denials, factors affecting tenure, sources of new faculty, and projections for the future are analyzed.
