Abstract

Diversification of the physician workforce has been a goal of Association of American Medical Colleges for several years and could improve access to primary care for under-served populations and address health disparities. We found that family physicians' demographics have become more diverse over time, but still do not reflect the national demographic composition. Increased collaboration with undergraduate universities to expand pipeline programs may help increase the diversity of students accepted to medical schools, which in turn should help diversify the family medicine workforce.
