Tables and Graphs for Fiscal Year 2016

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 2016 is the most recent data covering 136 fully-accredited U.S. medical schools. Like FY2015, the FY2016 Summary Tables display Federal Appropriations combined with State, Local, and Parent University Support. This matches the approach used to create the FY2016 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 Data Management Specialist, Data Operations and Services at anees@aamc.org or 202-903-0804.
