Minority faculty and academic rank in medicine.
Context. - Previous studies have found that fewer minority medical school faculty hold senior professorial ranks than do majority faculty and may not be promoted as rapidly.
- To determine whether minority faculty were as likely as majority faculty to have attained senior rank (associate professor or full professor) after adjusting for other factors that typically influence promotion.
- A self-administered mailed survey of US medical school faculty using the Association of American Medical Colleges database.
The sample was stratified by department, graduation cohort, and sex.
- A stratified random sample of 3013 full-time faculty at 24 representative US medical schools.
All underrepresented minority faculty at these schools were sampled.
Main Outcome Measure
- Attainment of senior academic rank (associate professor or full professor).
- Of 3013 faculty surveyed, 1807 (60.0%) responded, including 1463 white (81.0%), 154 black (8.5%), 136 Asian (7.5%), and 54 Hispanic (3.0%). Overall, 980 faculty (54%) had attained senior academic rank, including 47 (30.5%) of 154 black faculty, 59 (43.4%) of 136 Asian faculty, 22 (40.8%) of 54 Hispanic faculty, and 852 (58.3%) of 1463 white faculty.
White faculty had significantly more first-authored and total peer-reviewed publications than the other groups. (...)
