2011 Global Health Faculty Survey
The Global Health survey assessed the Medical College faculty's current activities in global health. Having an accurate assessment of campus activities in global health is vital to building programs that depend on faculty expertise and support their work.
The survey was completed by 31% of faculty (n=1,540). All departments are represented in these survey results. The number of faculty participants per department ranges from 2-80 faculty, with the Department of Pediatrics making up the largest department of survey participants. Participation in the survey was voluntary but extremely important to advance a MCW Global Health plan.
Of 441 faculty responses, 46% have or currently had global health activities; 138 responded yes and 64 have participated previously in global health activities and 239 reported no global health activity.
Of 234 faculty responses, 82 different countries were selected to represent their global health activity. The top countries represent all regions of the world including the United States, China, India, Nicaragua, Kenya, Guatemala, Italy and Belize.
Of 282 faculty responses, the top five areas of global health activity is child health (34%), primary care (27%), chronic disease (23%), injury (23%) and surgery (18%). Infectious disease (HIV/AIDS, STI, Malaria, TB, Parasitology) is the focus of 32% of faculty respondents.

The results of this survey have been made available as an interactive global map to all trainees and faculty to provide an opportunity to identify existing and develop new global health partnerships.
