Faculty Demographics

Gender

On average, women are better represented in Dell Med’s faculty than they are at other U.S. medical schools. Here, 55 faculty members are women and 70 are men — 44 and 56 percent, respectively. In 2017, women comprised 41 percent and men 59 percent of medical school faculty in America.

Dell Med recognizes that a disparity remains, and that representation is not equal across all departments. We are committed to continuing to work to close the gender gap in medicine.

Race / Ethnicity

Seventy-eight percent of Dell Med’s faculty is white, compared with a national average of 64 percent at all medical schools (2016). Our goal is to achieve a racial and ethnic representation in faculty that aligns with the population of Travis County, where Austin is the seat.
