Description of CME Course

Health care workforce diversity is a critical determinant of health equity and the social mission of medical education. Medical schools have a social contract with the public, which provides significant financial support to academic medical centers. Although a focus on diversity is critical in the admissions process for health professions schools, most US medical schools have failed to achieve racial-ethnic or economic diversity representative of the general US population. This article discusses limitations of holistic admissions, structural challenges for diverse learners in medical education, and how to implement socially accountable admissions.
