- The Power of Collective Action: Assessing and Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Efforts at AAMC Medical Schools
This report presents the aggregated findings from the 101 medical schools that completed the Diversity, Inclusion, Culture, and Equity (DICE) Inventory. The report provides a baseline illustration on the current state of activities, policies, or procedures pertaining to DEI in medical schools and expands on reported practices to aid all medical schools in bolstering their DEI efforts moving forward.
This publication was developed to empower academic medicine and other higher education professionals who want to help lead diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts at their institution.
OVERVIEW AND BENEFITS
This report quantifies the state of DEI at medical schools based on a national administration of the AAMC Diversity, Inclusion, Culture, and Equity (DICE) Inventory. Authors consider practices, procedures, and programs for moving forward as an academic medicine community. Ultimately the institutional changes this report advances will help ensure that students, faculty, staff, and the communities they serve know they are valued, they belong, and that they can thrive.
- Approximately 60% of medical schools had a total score of above 80% across all DICE Inventory items. No significant differences were observed based on medical school region, faculty size, ownership type (e.g., private or public), or accreditation year (e.g., before or after year 2000).
- Across all medical schools, the average scores for all subsections within the “Governance, Leadership, and Mission” and “Students” inventory sections were above 80%, indicating that there are substantial DEI efforts in place to address these areas.
- Across all medical schools, the average scores for all subsections within the “Data and Assessment” inventory section were between 66% and 73%, indicating that there are moderate DEI efforts in place in addressing these areas.
- Over 40% of medical schools scored below 60% in the subsections “Faculty and Staff: DEI Staff Recruitment and Development” and “Institutional Planning: Strategic Planning and Accountability”, indicating that these are areas of improvement for many medical schools to enhance their DEI efforts.
