To describe the current status of medical education programs in the United States, we used data from the 1997-1998 Liaison Committee on Medical Education Annual Medical School Questionnaire, which had a 100% response rate, and from other sources.
There were 96 733 full-time medical school faculty members, a 1.2% increase from 1996-1997.
The 43 020 applicants for the class entering in 1 997 represents an 8.4% decrease from 1996.
The number of 1997 applicants who were members of underrepresented minority groups decreased 11.1% from 1996, and the number of entering underrepresented minority group students decreased 8.4%. More than half of medical schools reported that the number of inpatients available for medical student education had decreased in at least some of their clinical sites or in some disciplines during the past 2 years.
Thirty-nine medical schools (31.2%) reported having more difficulty recruiting or retaining volunteer clinical faculty to participate in medical student teaching in 1997 than in 1995.
