2010 Faculty Needs Assessment Survey Report

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine established the Institute for Excellence in Education (IEE) in October 2009 to promote, value, and advance the education mission of the School of Medicine. To help the IEE understand our faculty member's needs and prioritize resources, an electronic needs assessment survey was sent to all faculty in May 2010.  Nearly one quarter of faculty responded. The results of the needs assessment are being used by the IEE and the SOM expand and build programs most relevant to faculty.

In general, our faculty members are wonderful teachers who are committed to excellence in teaching. Approximately 50% of our faculty wanted to spend more time in teaching and educational ventures. They are interested in learning more about becoming even better teachers and conducting quality educational research.  Time and finances, not surprisingly, were identified as barriers to teaching more, and spending more time on improving their skills.

Access to the full details of the needs assessment is restricted to the JHUSOM Community and users must log in with a JHED ID. These pages provide aggregated results of the needs assessment survey. As promised, the IEE does not identify (or know) individual faculty responders. Listed below is the type of information that was collected. Log in with your JHED ID to view the results.
