Altering the Course: Black Males In Medicine

August 3, 2015

This report aims to understand the reasons for the decline in black male applicants and enrollees in medical school since 1978. It draws from interviews with black pre-medical students, physicians, researchers, and leaders, as well as research and data regarding black male education and involvement in STEM fields. The major themes identified from these sources include unequal K-12 educational opportunities, the absence of mentors or role models in medicine, public perceptions of black men, career attractiveness, and lack of financial resources.
