Abstract

All 119 medical schools in the United States provided information for a study of academic manpower conducted by the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO). The average number of full-time faculty members per medical school is 13.2, with 2 positions vacant per school. Subspecialists are concentrated in university medical school departments, which also have large residency programs. A perceived need for 46% more faculty over the next 5 years will probably aggravate the shortage.
