a 6-year decline, the number of applicants to US medical schools is on the rise. The
main reason for the increase was an almost 7% rise in the number of women applicants
over last year. Women made up the majority of medical school applicants for the first
time ever, according to the American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC).
of the things that I like about MedicineNet is the editorial comments at the top of
the story. You can read the full
story here. It would be easy for the stats about black and Hispanic applicants
to get lost with the headline on women without the editorial. They’re right,
the news is decidedly mixed. And it sadly echos the discussion that’s been
happening about technology.
