Measurement of American Indian and Alaska Native Racial Identity Among Medical School Applicants, Matriculants, and Graduates, 1996-2017

Description
Presents a study on whether a 2002 change in the way the American Medical College Application System (AMCAS) tracks race/ethnicity data accurately represents medical school applicants, matriculants, and graduates who self-identify as American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN). Discusses the change in AMCAS' data collection around race and ethnicity for medical students and examines data from a cohort of AI/AN applicants and graduates from 1996-2017.
