StandPoint Faculty Engagement Survey for Health Professionals

New section

As academic medicine increasingly advocates for inter-professional education and health care teams, it is important to assess the need of faculty in all health professions.

The AAMC offers the StandPoint™ Faculty Engagement Survey for Health Professions to schools of nursing, dentistry, allied health, pharmacy, and other health professions to allow institutions to measure faculty engagement across health science centers and identify areas for collaboration in building high-performing organizations.
