Diversity in US medicine is not keeping pace with population changes, analysis finds

The United States is becoming more racially and ethnically diverse every day, but those changes are not reflected in the makeup of clinical faculty and leadership of medical schools in this country, according to a special report in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) led by Sophia Kamran, MD, a radiation oncologist at Mass General Cancer Center. While this analysis found some positive trends, the overall picture suggests that U.S. academic medical programs must not only recruit more underrepresented clinical faculty candidates, but also find ways to support them throughout the academic pipeline to build diversity at leadership levels in medicine, says Kamran.
