  1. aOutcome was measured by subtracting the year when current rank was assigned from current year 2016. A faculty was considered stalled if one has been in the current rank for more than three times the median time in a given range; that is, > 9 years for an instructor, > 12 years for an assistant professor, and > 15 years for an associate professor
  2. bProfessors were excluded in the analysis
