In Reply: We collect data on faculty sex composition in the Liaison Committee on Medical Education Annual Medical School Questionnaire and publish the results intermittently in our annual report on the status of medical education. For the 2001-2002 academic year, women comprised 29% of full-time faculty in basic science departments, 30% in clinical departments, and 30% of total faculty in 91 reporting medical schools.1 In 2002-2003, based on data from 114 schools, 30% of full-time faculty were women,2 including 28% of full-time basic science and 31% of clinical faculty (unpublished data). For 2003-2004, 117 schools provided data on faculty sex composition; 31% of full-time faculty in basic science departments, 32% in clinical departments, and 32% of faculty overall were women (unpublished data).
