The AMA Foundation, through the Minority Scholars Award, is working to increase the number of minority physicians to better represent the needs of our increasingly diverse society. Hispanic, American Indian, African-American, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian populations have been relatively under-represented in medicine, but studies have documented that physician diversity is helpful in: increasing access for underserved populations; increasing patient satisfaction; and ensuring culturally competent care. The Minority Scholars Award program not only encourages diversity in medicine and helps to alleviate some student debt, but it also rewards commitment to the elimination of healthcare disparities, outstanding academic achievements, leadership activities, and community involvement.
