Abstract/Description: As the U.S. population grows more diverse, it is becoming more and more important for medical schools to address health disparities, underserved populations and cultural competency. The growing population places increasing demands on our health care system and requires our medical schools to produce more culturally competent, health disparity-minded physicians. The 16th Report of the Council on Graduate Medical Education suggests that the demand for physicians after 2015 will be greater than the supply. The persons most impacted will be those who are underserved.
