New Publication on Evaluating Diversity Efforts in Medical Education

The importance of evaluating the impact of programs, especially those programs designed to increase underrepresented minority students’ access to medical education, requires persistent attention.  As part of this effort, Diversity Policy and Programs (DPP) convened its third Diversity Research Forum, “Successfully Evaluating Diversity Efforts in Medical Education,” during the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) 2007 Annual Meeting.  Its goal was to provide an overview of research and evaluation strategies used to successfully evaluate diversity efforts in medical education. The importance of evaluation design, implementation, and data collection were a central focus.  The publication is available free on the AAMC’s Web site at http://www.aamc.org/publications
