COLLEGE OF MEDICINE
The College of Medicine has increased its under-represented in medicine (URM) student population dramatically since 2002. In 2002, URM students comprised 11% of the College’s medical school’s student body, whereas today URM students account for 18% of the student body. Our current students, minority and majority alike, promote a collegial, collaborative environment where all students feel welcome. We are proud of our recruitment efforts of African-American males. We successfully matriculated 10 African-American males each year from 2006 to 2009 and continue the trend of exceeding the national average of majority medical schools for African-American male matriculates.
