    Best Practices for Recruitment and Retention of a Diverse Student Body Webinar

    On Wednesday, December 7, 2016, the Group on Student Affairs-Committee on Admissions (COA) and Committee on Student Diversity Affairs (COSDA) hosted the webinar “Best practices for recruitment and retention of a diverse student body.”

    Many schools are interested in the recruitment of a diverse student body to contribute to their medical schools mission. Through the Advancing Holistic Review Initiative many medical schools have been successful in achieving a diverse student body. It is equally as important to make sure there are programs in place to support and retain a diverse student body. In this webinar we will discuss one school’s experience with Holistic Review in medical school admissions and how this helped them with achieving a diverse student body. We will then hear best practices from two medical schools on how they have been successful in designing programs to retain their diverse student body.
