Minority Enrollments Drop at Medical Schools.
Mangan, Katherine S.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v43 n18 pA49-A50 Jan 10 1997
First-year enrollments of minority (American Indian, Hispanic, and black) medical students declined from 1995 to 1996, endangering efforts to achieve a diverse physician workforce. Some institutions are recruiting minorities aggressively and making an added effort to support their persistence. Many minority medical students plan to work in poor areas, where ethnic background and bilingual skills can enhance physician-patient interactions. (MSE)
