The overall number of underrepresented minority faculty at medical schools rose to 8% from 6.8% between 2000 and 2010, according to a study released by the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. However, minority faculty were less likely to hold senior faculty or administrative positions, the study found. "Although it is clear that efforts to enhance diversity and inclusion are increasing, it is not clear whether minority faculty development programs are effective in general at enhancing the recruitment and retention of underrepresented minority faculty," the study's authors wrote.
