One American in 560 becomes a doctor . . . Only one black American
in 3800 does. Why? The answers and what can be done about them are
presented in this succinct and important book by Dr. James L.
Curtis. Blacks, Medical Schools, and Society provides an insightful
history of the black physician in America from colonial times to
the present as well as an incisive analysis of contemporary trends
and future prospects in black medical education. Examining high
school programs and premedical workshops such as the Cornell
Medical School-Hampton Institute collaboration, the author
evaluates the impact of current approaches and suggests practical
steps to increase the quality and quantity of trained black doctors
and dentists. At a time when physicians are in short supply, and
when for the first time more than half of the country's black
medical students are attending predominantly white schools, this
book offers a significant and straightforward commentary on the
medical practices of a multiracial society.
