Better Health Sciences Through Minority Participation: The Case for Community-Based Minority Medical Schools.
Schlegel, Robert J.
Data are presented that indicate minorities have been under-represented in the health fields and biosciences. Previous attempts to increase minority involvement have not been satisfactory; hence, alternative approaches should be examined. One alternative is the creation of community-based minority institutions capable of conducting both services and education. This approach is new neither in America nor in other nations. The King/Drew Medical Center is provided as an example. Advantages and problems of such an approach are considered. (RH)
