Faculty Demographics

The definition of faculty used in the following faculty numbers is based on the criteria used in Harvard Medical School’s annual reporting for Academic Year 2016-17 to the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC). These data are based on active appointments in the Faculty of Medicine as of October 1, 2017.

These figures are not identical to those reflected in the Harvard Medical School Dean’s Report or in the Harvard University Office for Faculty Development & Diversity annual report, as the date on which the data are collected for each report will vary. Our AY 17-18 figures do reflect our data submissions to external agencies such as the AAMC and the US News and World report; please note that part time figures are not used by the AAMC.
