    AAMC Learning and Leadership Activities for Faculty

    AAMC-wide Initiatives Integrating or Targeting Faculty

    • Well-being in Academic Medicine. Well-being in academic medicine has emerged as a critical issue facing faculty, physicians, and researchers. These resources help explain and address the challenges.
    • StandPoint Surveys. A central element of a suite of services designed to help institutions assess faculty needs and implement strategic, evidence-based changes to enhance individual and organizational outcomes. The full-service survey administration includes all technical and communications assistance, provides executive summaries and peer benchmarking reports across ranges of demographics and department variables, and offers customizable options.
    • Convey. An AAMC initiative to relieve the regulatory burden on faculty by providing a secure online system that promises to simplify the process for faculty, researchers, and physicians who submitting financial interest disclosures by serving as a single repository of all financial interests and disclosures made.
    • Workgroup to Define Faculty. The AAMC leadership asked CFAS to lead in a multi-affinity group effort to define faculty and reach consensus on some of the key questions and issues related to who, exactly, comprises faculty at U.S. academic medical centers. The group will meet in person and via conference calls several times throughout 2015, and will conclude its work by writing and submitting to the AAMC Board of Directors a white paper stating its position and making recommendations.

    AAMC Data and Services about Faculty

    • AAMC Faculty Roster. This database provides online access to a variety of school-specific reports, national reports, and benchmarking reports on full-time faculty and chairs. Faculty roster reports include data on retention, promotion, alumni, demographics, degrees, and departments. Users can analyze trends on full-time faculty from 1966 to the present.
    • AAMC Faculty Salary Survey. This database provides faculty access to compensation information broken out in a variety of ways, such as by department/specialty, degree, and rank, as well as by a medical school’s private status and region of the country. Standard data displays are available to member medical schools in a paper publication as well as an online format.
    • The State of Women in Academic Medicine. A biennial report presents the findings of the Women in Medicine and Science Benchmarking Survey and describes the representation of women in academic medicine (from applicants to medical school across key career stages). The data and recommendations are designed to support advocacy for the advancement of women in academic medicine.
