The numbers of underrepresented minorities in medical schools are alarming. T4D seeks to address this concern by using the experiences and advising of current minority physicians, dentists, pharmacists, and medical students to help undergraduate students along the educational pipeline to health professions school.
Conceived by former medical student leaders, Tour for Diversity in Medicine is a grassroots effort to educate, inspire, and cultivate future minority physicians and dentists. Current trends in racial and ethnic health care disparities are widely documented and a major focus of many recent federal and state health policy changes. One frequently discussed solution is the need to increase the number of minority providers.
