Secondary School Science Minority Achievement Registry. Volume I. S3MAR Program Directory 1996-97. Project 3000 by 2000.
Ang, Tina, Ed.
The Association of American Medical Colleges launched Project 3000 by 2000 in November 1991 to address the under-representation of Blacks, American Indians, Mexican Americans, and Mainland Puerto Ricans in medical schools. Its aim is to increase the number of under-represented minorities entering medical schools to 3,000 by the year 2000. As part of this initiative, the "Secondary School Science Minority Achievement Registry" (S3MAR) presents in this volume a resource guide containing information about programs serving minority high school students who are interested in the health professions. Each of the programs listed in this guide provides students with substantive classroom or laboratory-based learning opportunities. All programs are at least 4 weeks, full-time, with substantial minority participation. The directory of 92 programs is designed for use by students, parents, teachers, and other educators. States are listed alphabetically, with programs in each state sorted into enrichment, laboratory, magnet, and National Institutes of Health programs. Volume II is a registry containing names, addresses, and career interests of participants in these programs. Volume II is distributed only to educators for student recruitment purposes. (SLD)
