Why It's Been a Record Year for Medical School Admissions (&What It Means for You) [Video]

Did the pandemic, social justice, or remote interviews boost motivation among aspiring doctors?Applicants to medical school soared by a record-setting 17.8% for the 2021-22 school year, led by historical increases among underrepresented minorities, according to new data from the AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges).The number of accepted students and new enrollments into medical school also reached new highs, making the first-year class of 2021 larger and more diverse than any before it. Among the 22,000-plus students who began medical school this fall, those self-identified as Black or African American rose by 21.0% from 2020-21, followed by increases of 8.3% among Asian students and 7.1% among those of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin, the AAMC found." "Instead, admissions leaders believe an unprecedented mix of developments compelled many medical school aspirants to leap from “someday” to “now”: pandemic-related shutdowns that cut off other opportunities and accelerated medical career plans; increased awareness of how doctors can help to alleviate social injustices; and changes that reduced fees for some students and eliminated travel costs associated with applying."LinkedIn (publications, professional stuff I'm up to!): https://www.linkedin.com/in/prerakjuthani Twitter (my random thoughts and love of econ/medicine memes): https://twitter.com/pjuthani?lang=en IG (literally me being extra af): https://www.instagram.com/prerakcity/?hl=en Snapchat (literally me being extra af): @prerakcity Tiktok: https://www.tiktok.com/@prerakjuthani My Board Game: www.reactgame.com My Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/red-white-brown/id1505136595Join me on clubhouse (@prerakcity) and Instagram DM me (or twitter) if you'd like an invite!
