With aging faculty, AHC prepares for high turnover

| No Comments

Within the next five years, about 33 percent of the faculty at the six schools of the Academic Health Center will become eligible to retire.
Faculty members and deans have frequently expressed concerns for years about the aging staff at annual budget meetings.
At the Duluth branch of the University's medical school, 70 percent of the faculty is over 60 years old.
"It's a major concern to have that large of a turnover of their long-term faculty," said James Carey, interim associate dean of affairs for the Medical School, according to the Minnesota Daily.
The University is having to deal with the rapidly aging baby boomer generation, and with it, many retirees.
"Each time we lose somebody, we lose a whole library of information," said Judith Garrard, who has worked at the University for 40 years. "It's both the knowledge they've gained through their own research and teaching but also knowledge of the culture of academia."
