Gateway Society to reverse decline in black men entering medical school
African-Americans now make up 4 percent of U.S. physicians overall. But while this statistic keeps inching up, it conceals a troubling trend: The number of African-American men entering medical fields has been falling since it peaked in the early 1990s, and it continues to drop, both here in Pittsburgh and across the United States. Gateway Medical Society is affiliated with the NMA, which was founded in 1895, a time when African-American doctors were not allowed to join the AMS and were barred from most medical schools. Gateway's mission is to "Close the Gap."
