Sharp drop in African-American male enrollment in med schools

Fewer African-American males were enrolled in the first year of medical schools last year than 32 years ago, a trend that, if left uncorrected, could hamper efforts to provide quality health care to underserved communities, according to a top officer in the Association of American Medical Colleges .

well, they need a massive recruiting effort!

even though i don't care for allopathic health care, i would like to see more of my own serving our communities instead of people who don't look like us and can sometimes even barely speak the English language. not be prejudiced here but people so better when they are treated and cared for by people they can identify with racially.

of course its healthier for blk men to be treated by other blk men.

BLACK STUDENTS at USC are accusing the RACIST LAPD of RACIAL PROFILING after dozens of KRAKA PIGS responded to a noise complaint at a party wearing RIOT GEAR. Looking like a bunch of SAVAGE, RACIST, BARBARIANS. RACIST PIGS are EVERYWHERE, it's in the SCHOOLS ran by " KRAKAS " it's in the JOBS ran by " KRAKAS " etc.... You name it. & what about that grown AZZ KRAKA that hit a TODDLER & called the CHILD, a N----- on an AIRPLANE. There's only ONE SOLUTION, SEPARATE from these INBRED, VERY CHILDISH BEASTS. And that is the GOD honest TRUTH.

Back to the topic. They didn't say female, just male. Perhaps they don't figure they would have a fair chance since most have to work their way through college which Med students do not have the time and money. Our economy just tanked. People are ready to jump into a spot in the workforce rather than accrue massive student loans. Its an academic area best suited for the privileged student.
