African-American Medical School Entry Statistics

Medical school entry for African-Americans, do you know what the medical school statistics really say about diversity?

The figures presented about African-American medical school entry will help you to determine how much of an emphasis each medical school puts into their claim of having a diverse student body.

On the flip side...…

There are some medical schools that recruit heavily for black medical school applicants but still have a low number of medical school admission offers for minorities.

My best advice would be to contact individual medical schools to find out more about their specific medical school entry policies for African-Americans.
