5 editions published between 1977 and 1990 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book assesses the experience of medical schools during the last decade in their deliberate efforts to increase the number of minority students in medicine. Sources for the report include journal articles, a previously published survey and evaluation of equal educational opportunity in health professions schools, and visits to forty medical schools. Beginning in 1968 there was a movement to bring more minority students into the study of medicine. The range and interest of individual medical schools involved in equal educational opportunity efforts varied enormously. Two possible deterrents to positive action are legal difficulties and the need for money. Further positive change to keep the program of action moving ahead in many medical schools depends upon refurbishing their commitment to positive action on behalf of minorities. The list of types of helpful programs for minorities has grown rapidly since 1968. a description of special programs developed to recruit minorities into medical schools and to improve their chances of graduating is included.
