Full-Time Faculty Positions  The number of full-time faculty employed by the medical schools continues to increase. This trend has been evident since the end of World War II and is the result of many factors: new schools, expanded enrollments in established schools, expanded research, expanded graduate programs, the development of new fields and disciplines, and the increase of service demands. Both basic-science and clinical faculties have increased in numbers. As has been noted here before, the greatest expansion continues to be in the clinical area. In spite of the annual increase in the full-time faculty, the number of budgeted unfilled positions remains. This continuing unmet need represents the continued growth of medical education as well as an expanding role in service which, with the recently passed legislation, will create new pressures for expansion.For the 1964-1965 academic year there were 15,514 full-time faculty members, a 7% increase since 19631964.
