Medical Schools Lack Black Male Students

African-American men made up only 2.5 percent of all med school applicants in 2011, says a recent report. The Association of American Medical Colleges also found that while Black men (30 and older) make up 10 percent of the U.S. male population, they only account for 3 percent of practicing doctors. To increase these numbers, better minority recruitment is needed.
