Women in Academic Medicine Statistics and Medical School Benchmarking, 2009-2010

The continued publication of this data underscores the commitment of the AAMC to support the entire spectrum of activities conducted by our member institutions.  For nearly three decades, this survey has examined women representation in accredited U.S. medical schools. 

For the 2009-2010 survey, Designated GWIMS Representatives and Faculty Roster Representatives from 131 accredited medical schools were asked to partner in providing data on faculty rank, leadership positions, new hires, promotion, tenure status, and departures.  The AAMC received responses from 117 schools, representing an 89 percent response rate. New to this year, additional data were collected on

  • Appointment status of leaders (e.g., interim and acting appointments)
  • Instructor appointments
  • Resources to support women faculty
  • Part-time and volunteer faculty appointments

Tables 1-12 report the percentages of men and women in the pipeline of students and residents, examine gender differences in areas of faculty hire and promotion, and provide breakouts of the representation of men and women in leadership positions.  Figures 1-6 provide a graphical representation of data trends, which are discussed in more detail in the report.
