AbstractTo determine the extent of involvement of British Columbia's physician community in the operation of the province's only medical school, the authors sent questionnaires to all physicians who had any affiliation with the University of British Columbia (UBC). About 20 percent of the province's physicians were involved in some capacity with the UBC Faculty of Medicine, which accepts about 120 students into the first year annually. Most faculty held "clinical" appointments, meaning that they pursued largely non-academic careers. Full-time academic appointees worked more than 20 percent more hours annually than did their "clinical" counterparts, and average hours for men exceeded those for women. As many as two-thirds of the full-time faculty were also engaged in sufficient clinical practice activity to be classified as full-time practicing physicians by a definition adopted by a provincial Joint Medical Manpower Committee.
