Family Medicine research stats

by Christina on January 21, 2010

I learned these numbers in a Family Medicine research meeting today:

  • Family medicine receives 0.20% of the NIH budget (compare this with 11.3% supporting pediatric research). 
  • 10 Family Medicine departments (7.6%) earn ~50% of all NIH Family Medicine awards. 
  • The average Family Medicine faculty member publishes less than 1 article per year and spends half a day or less each week on research. 

Hmmm.
