Accepted Applicants Weekend
This event was established to support Project 3000 by 2000. The project was initiated by the Association of American Medical Colleges in 1991, to increase the number of underrepresented minorities entering U.S. medical schools to 3000 by year 2000. Its executive implementation committee was chaired by Baylor College of Medicine's Chancellor Emeritus, William T. Butler, M.D.
BCM's support of Project 3000 by 2000 was underscored by the recruitment of James L. Phillips, M.D., Senior Associate Dean and Professor of Pediatrics. He has put in place a multifaceted program to increase the cultural diversity at our institution. Faculty mentors and upper classmen have been assigned to the underrepresented minority students; guest minority lecturers are scheduled; academic support is available; and the students participate in various community activities targeting the underserved.
