In order to accumulate data on foreign medical students in the Americas, medical schools of the member countries of the Pan American Health Organization region of the World Health Organization were surveyed to acquire data on their student enrollments by country of origin, sex, and year of study for the 1971-72 academic year. A tabular questionnaire was designed in which total enrollment for each school could be recorded by sex, nationality, and year of study. The response rate to the survey questionnaire was 97.2%. Results of the survey encompass an overview of medical students in the Americas; U.S. citizens studying medicine in other countries of the Americas; U.S.-born medical students in Mexico; foreign medical students in selected countries of the Americas; and foreign medical students in the United States.
