This biennial report on the WIMS Benchmarking Survey has been completely redesigned to enrich your understanding of the state of women in medicine by providing multiple AAMC data sources, referencing scholars in academic medicine, and highlighting actionable strategies from the field with the goal of helping you to turn data into action to advance women at your institution.

While academic medical centers are working toward increasing diversity among faculty and leadership positions, as well as in the student population, this report reveals that women remain underrepresented in key career stages. Some findings include:

  • Although the number of women applying to medical school has increased, their proportion of the applicant pool has decreased
  • Women make up 38% of the full-time academic medicine workforce, but only 21% of full professors and 15% of department chairs
  • New hires of women faculty are up 4%, but departures are up 5%

The State of Women in Academic Medicine provides:

  • Online access to the complete benchmarking tables
  • A new benchmarking tool that helps you present the overall findings of the report alongside comparisons between your school and others across the country
  • Steps you can take to advance women faculty at your institution
  • Key actionable items around role expectation, workplace culture, opportunities for advancement, and more, that will help women faculty succeed
  • Comparison of medical school resources to support women faculty
  • Ten-year comparison of women in faculty and leadership positions
  • And much more

The data and recommendations presented in this report are designed to equip those advocating for the advancement of women at their institutions with a baseline from which to examine their own organizational practices. This information is also intended to support further scholarship on the subject of women in academic medicine to address the pipeline and pathways to leadership.
