The Beginning of a Journey. A Report on Minority Programs in Predominantly White Dental Schools.
Lennon, Frank; And Others
Dental schools across the country have begun to devote special attention to educating minority students in order to alleviate the acute shortage of minority dental manpower. The Workshop on Minority Education in Dentistry presented issues and approaches to answering a basic set of questions: How can qualified minority students be identified and where can they be found? What relevance do established admissions criteria have to these students? How best can the academic and social needs of these students be met in a structure that has evolved to meet a different set of academic preparations and cultural influences? How best can financial assistance be provided so that these students may graduate from dental school without incurring prohibitive indebtedness? What are the costs of establishing such a program and how can these costs be met? (Author/JMF)
