Results from Previous Faculty Engagement Surveys

  • The School of Medicine, in Spring Semester 2015, participated for the third time in the AAMC Faculty Forward survey which is an instrument developed for medical schools by the AAMC. Faculty Forward has now been relabeled as the StandPoint Faculty Engagement Survey that encompasses surveys for medical school faculty, staff, and health related professional schools.
  • Our first Faculty Forward survey, in 2009, was a collaborative survey between the AAMC and COACHE. Since 2012 the AAMC has independently managed the Faculty Forward survey process.
  • The AAMC presented national trends for schools that conducted surveys between 2013 and 2016 at an AAMC meeting in February 2017.

Information about previous survey results and actions taken by the School of Medicine to address trends can be found in the following presentations:
