OVERVIEW AND BENEFITS


The benefits of using holistic review to increase student body diversity within medical schools are two-fold. Diversity can lead to a more robust learning environment that helps students develop into broad-thinking, socially engaged, competent, and caring professionals. Second, it lends itself to shaping a diverse physician workforce that serves the health care needs of a diverse population. This publication provides a map to excellence by addressing both.

In addition to being a tool for evaluation of core processes, this publication provides powerful feedback on the extent to which both the school and its graduates are meeting institutional missions and goals. It also provides useful data about promising practices, strategies, and approaches for the medical education community at large. It provides:

  • Frameworks, sample questions, and resources to help nurture a community of practice focused on the impact of holistic admissions and increased diversity.
  • Insights on whether the institution’s admissions policies, processes, and practices are yielding the mission-driven diversity the school seeks.
  • Ways to determine the degree to which the school is successful leveraging diversity to achieve intended mission-driven educational and professional outcomes.
