Dean’s Office Leadership at U.S. Medical Schools

This data snapshot provides partial summaries of the results from the 2022-2023 Survey on the Compensation of the Dean's Office Staff (DOS) and the AAMC's Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) Benchmarking Survey from 2023. The report describes administrative areas within the medical school's dean's office that are most and least likely to hold a senior associate or vice dean title and which are most likely to report directly to the dean. Count ranges and deciles of decanal roles are also shared.

Determining the appropriate quantity, seniority, and reporting of decanal positions is highly unique to each school; however, medical school leaders may find this snapshot useful in comparing their current and future states to current national ranges.
