Five prior academic manpower studies were completed by ACOG and the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics in 1977-1990.
In the current survey, a similar questionnaire was sent to the 130 accredited medical school departments of obstetrics-gynecology ; 127 responded.
The mean number of full-time faculty members per department is 25.8, an increase of 14% over the last 4 years.
Among faculty, women constitute 30.4%, an increase of five percentage points since 1990.
Certified subspecialists on faculties have increased 27% in the last 4 years, but decreasing percentages of all subspecialists are in faculty positions compared with private practice settings.
Chairmen remain optimistic about continued faculty growth despite the inroads of managed care.
