The University of Kentucky recently made headlines when it reported a double-digit drop in the number of black freshmen enrolled at the school; from 420 in 2017 to 370 this fall. It’s a trend that school officials pledge to reverse. The new numbers belie a long-term increase in diversity, particularly when it comes to the med school student body. That’s a subject for this week’s edition of Dr. Greg Davis on Medicine.
Dr. Chipper Griffith is vice dean for education at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. He talks with Dr. Greg about the changing face of medical education.
