NOTICE: The project that is the subject of this report was approved by the Governing Board of the National Research Council, whose members are drawn from the councils of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. This report has been reviewed by a group other than the authors according to procedures approved by a Report Review Committee consisting of members of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. The National Academy of 'Sciences is a private, nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use fo'r the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter' granted to it'by the Congress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters. Dr. Frank Press is president of the National Academy of Sciences. The National-Academy of Engineering was established in 1964, under the charter of the National Academy of Sciences, as a parallel organization of outstanding engineers. It is autonomous in its administration and in the selection of its members, sharing with the National Academy of Sciences the responsibility for advising the federal government. The National Academy of Engineering also sponsors engineering programs aimed at meeting national needs, encourages education and research, and recognizes the superior achievements of engineers. Dr. Robert M. White is president of the National Academy of . . ;nglneerlng. The Institute of Medicine was established in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to secure the services of eminent members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters pertaining to the health of the public. The Institute acts under the responsibility given to the National Academy of Sciences by its congressional charter to be an adviser to the federal government and, upon its own initiative, to identify issues of medical care, research, and education. Dr. Samuel O. Thier is president of the Institute of Medicine. The National Research Council was organized by the National Academy of Sciences in 1916 to associate the broad community of scienceiand technology with the Academy's purposes of furthering knowledge and advising the federal government. Functioning in accordance with general policies determined by the Academy, the Council has become the principal operating agency of 'bosh the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering in providing services to the government, the public, and the scientific and engineering communities. The Council is administered jointly by both Academies and the Institute of Medicine. Dr. Frank Press and Dr. Robert M. White are chairman and vice chairman, respectively, of the National Research Council. This study was supported by contract N01-OD-2109 between the National Academy of Sciences and the National Institutes of Health.

Foreword An 1988 the Nations imitates of Health Planning and Policy Research Branch tasked Quantum Research Corporation to review and update a series of statistical tables required for the National Research Council's 1989 study of biomedical and behavioral personnel and training needs. These tables had originally been published in He National Research Council's 1985 report on Personnel Needs and Training for Biomedical and Behavioral Research. The resulting statistical tables are provided in this volume. Data for these tables were obtained Mom the Association of Amencan Medical Colleges, the Amencan Dental Association, the Amencan Medical Association, He Bureau of He Census, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics, the National Research Council, the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health A~ninistration, and several National Institutes of Health units. When necessary, special computer summaries were non against NIH database files, such as the Consolidated Grant Applicant File (CGAF) and the Trainee and Fellow File (1~), to secure the needed information. There are two sets of tables denved from the AAMC Medical School Faculty Roster database: Al.-A3. arid A21.-A25. The first set was tabulated from the 1987 Ale by AAMC staff to extend the time senes of Al.-A3.; the latter set was tabulated from the 1988 file by QRC staff for NIH/PPRB to extend the time series Updated Trends and Some Observations About Medical School Faculties. Differences between He 1987 file and the updated 1988 Ale as wed as differences In the Aerations needed to extend the two time senes, have resulted in the tabulation of slightly different numbers of faculty. These statistical tables are maintained at the NIH (PPRB), in computenzed form as a series of Microsoft Excel spreadsheets with an associated table retrieval subsystem. All seventy-one detailed tables, as wed as the three suIrunary tables, are stored on a single high-density 3.5" diskette. The tables will be updated annually, and available at the NIH (PPRB).
