Designed for medical school department chairs, deans, associate deans, and other leaders interested in faculty and equity issues.



In this first analysis of national salary trends by gender, the AAMC shares research and experiences in conducting salary equity studies at the local level.

This publication discusses the key data findings, guides readers through how to examine salary equity at their institutions, and presents recommendations on what to consider when developing an effective strategy.

Main takeaways from the report include:

  • Medical schools should conduct a local salary data analysis to begin development of a salary equity strategy.
  • Median total compensation is greater for men than for women at almost every faculty rank, across most specialties.
  • Looking at the work of other institutions can guide a medical school’s strategy for dealing with salary equity.
