Ogunyemi et al. (2022) evaluated trends and associations in faculty diversity of United States medical schools over a five-year period (2014-2018). They report that female faculty increased modestly while the trend remained flat for faculty typically underrepresented (UiM) in medicine. Female and UiM faculty were less represented at the professor level.
