StandPoint Survey

In recognition of the key roles faculty play in academic health center performance–including delivering excellent healthcare, conducting ground-breaking research, and teaching the next generation of physicians and scientists–the Association of American Medical College (AAMC) created an initiative called StandPoint Faculty Engagement Survey. StandPoint supports medical schools in their efforts to attract and retain the best and brightest academic scientists, educators, and clinicians. StandPoint is a collaborative partnership between the AAMC, member medical schools, and teaching hospitals around the country that is focused on measuring and enhancing faculty engagement.

StandPoint is the largest national faculty workplace survey designed to address the issues unique to faculty engagement in academic medicine. Over 75 US medical schools have participated in StandPoint to identify strengths and development areas enterprise-wide, for each department, and to benchmark with other organizations to share innovative and effective engagement practices.

2022 Survey

The survey will be administered October 4-November 11, 2022. The SOM has previously undertaken this effort in 2009, 2015, and 2018.
