Trump Reversal on Race in Admissions Raises Concerns about Diversity Among PhysiciansJuly 9, 2018 |

The Association of American Medical Colleges is raising concerns that the Trump administration’s recent rescission of guidance of consideration of race in university admissions might threaten efforts to improve diversity at medical schools.
Earlier this week, the administration announced it would no longer support guidance created under the Obama administration encouraging schools to take a student’s race into account in their admissions. Schools and universities will be allowed to take a race-neutral approach in admissions and enrollment decisions.
