How to Use This Presentation This presentation contains editable charts you can use to compare and benchmark your school with the average of all U.S. medical schools fully accredited by the LCME. Currently all charts show national data. To edit the charts: 1.Click on the link at the bottom of the slide you want to edit to take you to the appropriate benchmarking table. 2.Find the data you’d like to display for your school. 3.Right click on the chart for “My Institution” and select “Edit Data” 4.Add the data for your school into the spreadsheet that pops up. 5.Click on the title “My institution” to add the name of your medical school Error with older PowerPoint Versions: If your charts do not show the correct percentages, and instead show [value], follow these steps to fix: 1.Right click on the data labels “[value]” 2.Select “Format data labels” 3.Check “Value” and click the “Reset Label Text” button. This should show the values for the national data. This presentation is fully editable. Choose the data aspects that are most important for your school or program. We suggest you craft your presentation to include an introduction, overview of the data, and end with action steps. We have included suggested slides in this presentation for your use.

What’s the Current State of Women in Academic Medicine and Science? The proportion of female applicants applying to medical school has continued to drop since it peaked in (51% female applicants in to 46% female applicants in ). Women make up 38% of all full time faculty. The proportion of full professors who are women has increased 7 percentage points since 2004 (14%-22%), but the percentage of new tenured positions given to women has remained the same (30%). The only academic rank with more women than men faculty is instructor. Women continue to hold a significantly smaller number of key leadership positions 15% Department Chairs 16% Deans Women are relatively well represented in deans office administrative roles 46% assistant deans 38% associate deans 34% senior associate deans
Where does the data come from? Data from this presentation is from the Report “The State of Women in Academic Medicine: The Pipeline and Pathways to Leadership” and benchmarking tables published by the Association of American Medical Colleges.The State of Women in Academic Medicine: The Pipeline and Pathways to Leadership The report collects data from the biennial Women in medicine and Science (WIMS) Benchmarking Survey distributed to the Group on Women in Medicine (GWIMS) and Science and Faculty Roster Representative at all LCME fully accredited medical schools in the U.S. 117 out of 129 fully accredited U.S. medical schools completed this survey for a 91% response rate Data from non-respondent schools was pulled from the Faculty Roster.

What Women Say They Need To Succeed The AAMC Faculty Forward Engagement Survey shows that women respond with high levels of engagement and satisfaction with: Clear expectations about role and the path of advancement An equitable and diverse workplace Access to opportunities for development and advancement
How can we take action? Send aspiring women leaders to the AAMC Early and Mid-Career Women Faculty Professional Development Seminar. Have alums conduct seminars locally to teach faculty who couldn’t attend. Support women faculty in national professional development opportunities throughout the career lifecycle. Provide unconscious bias training for search and P&T committees. Use standard processes for all searches to reduce biases. Train both male and female students and faculty to effectively mentor across genders. Start a sponsorship program for women. Find out if your school has ever conducted a salary equity study. Find out how your faculty perceive your institution’s culture and climate. Support your local WIMS Groups on campus and empower women to support, mentor, and sponsor each other.
Our priorities and action steps (Use this slide to include other action items or targeted next steps based on your results. Consider linking these action items to your institution’s strategic plan and/or institutional goals) (These action steps should relate directly back to the major findings unique to your school in Slide 14)
