Asians and Latinos Surpass Black Males in Applying for Medical School

In the late 1970s, African-Americans males were ahead of Asians and Latinos as first-time applicants for medical school. Black male applicants have increased by 31 percent (2,361 in 1977 to 3,215 in 2011) while Hispanic applicants have more than tripled to 3,459, and Asian applicants increased to 8,941, according to Med Page Today.  (Photo: Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
