There has been a precipitous decline of HBCU graduates applying to medical, dental, pharmacy, biomedical, and health science programs at a time when the need for culturally competent health care has dramatically increased. Proactive leadership is critical to improve these outcomes. In response to this critical and vital need, the presidents from Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, Howard University, Meharry Medical College and Morehouse School of Medicine will co‐convene a conference titled “Preparing a Competitive HBCU Applicant Pool for Health Science Careers.” This program is designed to develop a comprehensive initiative to increase the number of academically prepared HBCU graduates who apply and enroll in graduate and professional schools in health sciences fields.
The conference will include invited presentations by leadership from the White House Initiative on HBCUs, UNCF, and AAMC. Participating schools will attend working sessions to develop and make recommendations on best practices, and the schools will be presented with a toolkit of successful models and strategies for test taking.
