1 Diversity Resources and Data Snapshots January 2011 Edition Diversity Policy and Programs & the Center for Workforce Studies

2 AAMC’s Center for Workforce Studies conducted a series of analyses focusing on physician race and ethnicity with data from its Surveys of Physicians Under and Over 50 (two nationally representative sample surveys conducted in 2006). The first of three installments in the Diversity Resources and Data Snapshots series featuring this research, results reported here focus on physician demographic and practice characteristics. Physician Workforce Research: Focus on Physician Race and Ethnicity

3 Minority physician numbers have been growing in the U.S., but not as fast as the population among Blacks and Hispanics. The feminization of the physician workforce has been disproportionately non-white. Solo practice is no longer so prevalent among younger doctors, with greatest shift among Asian or Pacific Islander and Black/African American physicians. Black/African American physicians are the lest likely to work part time. Physician Race & Ethnicity: Demographic & Practice Characteristics
