Faculty Demographics

Gender

On average, women are better represented in Dell Med’s faculty than they are at other U.S. medical schools. Here, 105 faculty members are women and 126 are men — 46% and 54%, respectively. In 2019, women comprised 42% and men comprised 58% of medical school faculty in the United States.

Though the percentage of female faculty members has increased since 2018, Dell Med recognizes that a disparity remains, and we are committed to continuing to work to close the gender gap in medicine.

  • 9% of faculty members are Hispanic/Latinx, compared to 7% in 2018.
