Downsizing of Basic Science Departments in U.S. Medical Schools: Perceptions of Their Chairs.
Mandel, H. George
Academic Medicine, v72 n10 p894-900 Oct 1997
The National Caucus of Biomedical Science Chairs administered a 35-item questionnaire concerning department downsizing to medical school basic science department heads (n=400). Results indicate significant loss of faculty positions in one-third of the schools, with a 10% overall reduction from 1985-95. Department restructuring, with merging of disciplines, was common. Changes in fiscal and tenure policies were also common. (Author/MSE)
