Chief psychologists in the 115 schools of medicine in the US were surveyed (100% response rate) with a mail questionnaire and asked to list all psychologists holding academic appointments at the medical school. They also were asked to indicate the number of these psychologists who were full-time and part-time and the number of them who received budgetary support from the school of medicine. Data from this survey were compared with data from J. D. Matarazzo and R. S. Daniel's 1957 survey and N. N. Wagner and K. L. Stegeman's 1964 survey. Overall results show that 2,336 psychologists now hold academic positions in schools of medicine, as compared to 993 in 1964 and 346 in 1955.
