The Louisiana State University (LSU) School of Medicine-New Orleans has been active in recruiting minority students to create a diverse medical student body.
Recognizing the need to explore ways to assess minority applicants, over the past 10 years, LSU has offered Simulated Minority Admissions Exercise (SMAE) workshops to its admission committee members.
Participants in six of LSU's SMAE workshops were asked to respond anonymously to an evaluation form immediately following the workshop.
Sixty of the 64 participants responded.
The overall evaluation of the workshops was positive.
More than 80% of participants indicated that due to their participation in SMAE, they knew how to locate and assess application data particularly relevant to minority applicants.
The results suggest that identifying variables that enhance minority student admission and retention is desirable.
