At the Johns Hopkins Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, African Americans have comprised 22.9% of all residents admitted through the match program between enrollment years 1992 and 1998, and women have comprised 14.3%. The number of African American residents within the Orthopaedic program during any given academic year has been as high as 32%, and the number of female residents has been as high as 20%. These numbers have been achieved even though African Americans comprise only 1.5% of all United States orthopaedists, whereas women comprise only 2.3%. This achievement has been the result of a commitment by the chairman of the Johns Hopkins Department of Orthopaedic Surgery to develop diversity within the department's residency program.
