IV. Current School Demographics

A. About the Data

The Professoriate of the School of Medicine is organized into three faculty lines: the University Tenure Line, the Non-Tenure Line (Research and (Teaching) , and the Medical Center Line. The School is committed to promoting a Professoriate that values equally the activities and contributions of all faculty, and to establishing a single community of faculty that embraces all of the contributions of School of Medicine faculty in the fulfillment of the School's mission.

Over the past few years, the School of Medicine has made slow but steady progress in bringing diversity to the ranks of its faculty. As reflected in these charts, we still have work to do in addressing the important issues of diversity and career development in academic medicine, a challenge that is shared by our peer institutions.

Created in 2004, the Office of Diversity and Leadership has been working with leaders across the School to address disparities and under-utilization and to enhance the diversity of our broader community. Significant accomplishments have included revision of the search process, education of search committees around issues of unconscious bias, and provision of resources to broaden the diversity of applicant pools, all of which are described in this Guide to Faculty Searches. We are committed to championing a diverse and inclusive community which is the inspiration and foundation for our excellence and achievements.

The School values equally the activities and contributions of all faculty and is committed to establishing a single community that embraces all of the contributions of School of Medicine faculty in the fulfillment of the School’s mission.

C. Distribution by Rank and Faculty Line (2011)

The charts below illustrate the five-year rank distribution across the three lines in the Professoriate.  Taking into consideration the ebb and flow of appointments, promotions, resignations and retirements, the distributions have remained fairly consistent over this period of time (including the concentration of full professors in the University Tenure Line).
