Our mission is to demonstrate the excellence put forth by black male physicians and rising students in the medical field, as a means to increase the recruitment of black males in medicine. We also aim to provide a secure platform for minority males to openly discuss the difficult topics we face as minorities in medicine.

The Dire Need For BMIM

According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, in 1978, there were 1,410 Black male applicants to medical school, and in 2014, there were just 1,337. In 1978, only 542 Black men across the nation graduated from medical school. In 2014 it was even less—515. That means each Black male doctor that the field of medicine loses is unlikely to be replaced.

Implicit Bias

The implications of this body of scientific study—both decades old and newly emerging—are enormous. Contrary to the common belief that the nation’s progress with gender and racial equity has largely confined biases today to a small group of aberrational actors, researchers have shown that implicit biases are widespread and operate largely beneath the radar of human consciousness.
