Tables and Graphs for Fiscal Year 2012

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 2012 is the most recent data covering 126 fully accredited U.S. medical schools. Like FY2011, the FY2012 Summary Tables display Federal Appropriations combined with State, Local, and Parent University Support. This change to the tables matches the approach used to create the FY2012 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, Database Specialist, Data Operations and Services at anees@aamc.org or 202-903-0804.
