In September 2008, the Association of American Medical Colleges published “Diversity in Medical Education: Facts and Figures 2008“, which is the 15th such databook in their Facts & Figures Data Series. The 147-page report is available online (at no cost) from AAMC at this link.
Following is an excerpt from the AAMC Diversity Initiatives in Medical Education 2008 title page:
” This publication provides students, medical educators and administrators, researchers, policy makers, and the general public with a compendium of detailed statistical information on race, ethnicity, and gender in medical education in the United States for the 2007 academic year. This publication also includes data related to the pre-college component of the education pipeline leading to the M.D. degree and other health sciences and health professions careers.“
