Faculty & Staff Demographics
The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion supports people of every identity, reporting on the demographic categories of faculty and staff defined by the Association of American Medical Colleges due to underrepresentation in medicine.
Beyond these categories, Dell Medical School defines diversity broadly, to include all facets by which individuals identify themselves.
As of June 2018 ...
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.

Dell Med recognizes the value of diversity and inclusion. Our team is committed to developing and implementing programs that create a vibrant, inclusive environment to support diverse staff, students, trainees and faculty.
Of Dell Med’s 371 staff members, 269 are women and 102 are men. Women represent 72.5 percent of the team. In 2017, the Travis County population was 49.5 percent women and 50.5 percent men.
As with faculty, the percentage of non-white staff is smaller than the percentage of those groups in Travis County.
Unless otherwise noted, data from U.S. medical schools and the Travis County population is from 2016, the latest year for which information is available.
