The Potential Burden of Being Underrepresented in Health Professional Programs


Description:

This study will have two purposes: (1) To compare the academic experience and level of perceived stress of non-URM health professional students to that of URM health professional students; (2) To examine the experience of URM health professional students and more specifically, to determine to what degree does the racial/ethnic diversity of a particular health professional cohort influence URM student perceptions of inclusion and affect their academic success.
