Tables and Graphs for Fiscal Year 2018

New section

The following tables and graphs summarize data from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) Part I-A Annual Medical School Financial Questionnaire (AFQ) administered by the AAMC. Fiscal year 2018 is the most recent data covering 141 fully-accredited U.S. medical schools. Like FY 2017, the FY 2018 Summary Tables display Federal Appropriations combined with State, Local, and Parent University Support. This matches the approach used to create the FY 2018 Graphs and also reflects the often times comingled nature of the Government and Parent University Appropriations. Questions about the data or requests for additional comparative data can be directed to Andy Nees, Senior Research and Data Analyst, Data Operations and Services at afq@aamc.org.
