Health Resources Administration (DHEW/PHS), Rockville, MD. Office of Health Resources Opportunity.
An exploratory study, completed in 1976, of U.S. medical schools' efforts to achieve equal representation of minority students was conducted to assess the degree to which the goals for minority participation established by a 1970 Association of American Medical Colleges' Task Force had been met and the extent to which the Task Force recommendations have been implemented. That study was condensed and updated and is presented in this monograph. Chapter I provides a summary of the study, the Task Force goals and recommendations, and findings of the study, followed by a more detailed project background given in Chapter II. Chapter III contains the analysis of medical school enrollment patterns while Chapter IV places the analysis of medical school enrollment within the context of the entire educational system. The extent to which the Task Force goals were achieved is contained in Chapter V, and Chapter VI presents the analysis of the extent to which the Task Force recommendations were implemented. Chapter VII contains an analysis of program activities directed toward increasing minority enrollment. A summary of eight case studies of individual medical schools undertaken to supplement the national statistical data is presented in Chapter VIII. (Author/SPG)
