February 10, the Academic Medicine Consortium of Arizona (AMCA) hosted the Black Men in White Coats Summit at Midwestern University to increase the number of Black physicians in medicine.

Currently, only 5% of physicians in the United States identified as Black or African American. To help address this disparity, members from the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix and other medical schools in the state volunteered at the event’s workshops and information booths.
