" ... neither the burden of proof nor the recognition of
problem within medical school is the responsibility of the non-
white medical student. The administration and faculty must awaken
to their responsibilities of assuring that acceptance correlates
with graduation. It is easy to make demands on students, but it
should be accompanied with an attitude and environment which are
free from undue stress. The needs of the minority medical student
should be institutionalized by more than a verbal commitment.
A sincere and concerted effort in recognizing the existing problems
within each school is not an insurmountable task. It requires
an open and sensitive faculty and administration who respect the
legitimacy of student needs and who are receptive to student input."
