Increasing the enrollment of underrepresented minority dental students: experiences from the dental pipeline program.
J Dent Educ. 2007 Mar; 71(3):339-47.JD

Abstract

Dental educators have been trying to increase enrollment of underrepresented minority (URM) students for many years with limited success. The Pipeline, Profession, and Practice: Community-Based Dental Education program has developed or been affiliated with several innovative strategies for increasing the enrollment of URM students in U.S. dental schools. In March 2005, three promising approaches were discussed at an American Dental Education Association symposium and are described in this article: 1) collaborative recruitment programs based on groups of regional schools; 2) workshops that focus on the effective operation of admissions committees; and 3) a new summer enrichment program for college students interested in dentistry and medicine.
