Note from Dr. Shah here

The StandPoint Faculty Engagement Survey will open on Tuesday, November 1st, 2022.

The survey will close on Wednesday, December 9th, 2022

StandPoint Surveys is a collaboration between the AAMC and medical schools to ensure that academic medical centers are great places to work by providing tools and resources to help medical schools improve faculty engagement, retention, and ultimately enhance institutional culture. The StandPoint Faculty Engagement Survey is evidence-based and designed to aid academic medical centers in developing talent management practices to attract and retain excellent faculty. Through this program, your institution will be able to determine the changes you would like to see in the workplace and develop a plan to create those changes.

Simply stated, your medical school needs to know what you think of your work experience so administrators can identify areas that can be improved. Because the survey directly addresses issues that can impact policies and strategic planning at your institution, the survey is an important opportunity to provide your feedback. Ultimately, your answers will not only help improve your medical school, but also the academic medical community overall.

To date, more than 70 U.S. medical schools have participated in StandPoint Surveys. A full list of participating schools can be found here.

The AAMC StandPoint Faculty Engagement Survey provides participating institutions with tools that can be used to understand and improve the quality of work life for faculty, as each section of the survey is designed to generate a report of actionable data. The survey was developed and reviewed by experts in survey design, statistics, economics, psychology, and education, and based on in-depth focus groups with medical school clinical and basic science faculty members.

The survey typically takes 15-20 minutes to complete; however, this may vary. We recommend allotting time to complete the survey all at once, but it is possible to save your results and finish it later.

It is best that you start the survey as soon as you receive it; however, you will have access to the survey for approximately one month from November 1st, 2022. Faculty who have not completed the survey will receive reminders by email. The survey will close on December 9th, 2022. 

You do not need to begin the survey again. However, you will be sent back to the beginning of the survey the next time you log in. By clicking the “Next” button on the bottom of each page, you can review the answers you previously entered as well as navigate to the place you last left off.

The problem may be caused by your web browser’s pop-up blocker. Although our survey is designed not to be hindered by the default settings of such pop-up blockers, the more stringent blockers may cause a problem like the one you are describing.

To temporarily disable your pop-up blocker, hold down the CTRL button as you click the link that begins the survey. If you are still having problems, disable your pop-up blocker in your browser’s “Tools” menu under “Pop-up Blocker” (if using Internet Explorer) or under “Options” (if using Firefox). If you are using a third-party pop-up blocker, such as Google Toolbar, you will have to temporarily disable that too.

If trouble persists, contact our Help Desk at 202-828-0646 Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. ET.

Confidentiality is assured in all StandPoint Surveys analyses and reports. Your name and email address are retained solely for the sake of reminding respondents to begin or complete their survey. When StandPoint Surveys submits the survey report to your institution, only the aggregate data will be included in the report. No identifiers are matched to reported responses, and no disaggregated data will be presented for any subgroup with fewer than five respondents. In addition, any personally identifiable information will be removed from all responses to open-ended questions.

Your responses to this survey will be combined with those of other faculty at your medical school and will be analyzed and summarized in the aggregate. StandPoint Surveys will provide your institution with a survey report that compiles all the quantitative findings from your medical school. The report will:

· Compare survey results from your institution with several other peer medical schools.

· Highlight major findings relative to peer medical schools and the entire cohort.

Additionally, your institution will receive an electronic file with the survey’s qualitative data in a de-identified and redacted format to protect the identities of respondents.

Response Rates (more information coming soon...)

The first report will be made available on November 4th, 2022
