• A survey showed that there were 338 strict or geographic full-time dermatologist faculty members in the United States. Ninety-six percent of these 338 faculty members were located at the 72 schools of medicine with residency training programs in dermatology or at the 21 approved residency training programs in dermatology, not affiliated with colleges of medicine. The 42 schools of medicine without approved residency training programs in dermatology reported only 11 full-time dermatologist faculty (3% of the total). Women constituted 7% of the faculty, while foreign medical graduates constituted 9%. More than one third of faculty were trained at the institution in which they currently serve. Approximately one third were likewise trained at four major teaching institutions.
