Status and Prospects of Minority Students in Traditional Medical Schools

  • Leroy T. Brown

Abstract

There is a need to increase the number and the success rate of minority students enrolling in medical careers. Although an increasing number of minorities enter the freshman year of undergraduate education in Wisconsin, the rate at which they enter is still substantially less than that for all students in the state as a whole (USDHEW, 1970, 1972a,b; see Table 1).
