US medical school enrollment soars
Enrollment in U.S. medical schools is on track to jump by 30 percent within five years after universities opened more programs and made other changes, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. The association, which represents all 141 accredited U.S. medical schools and nearly 400 teaching hospitals, said first-year medical school enrollment will reach 21,304 in the 2019-20 school year. It’s just 130 positions short of a goal the association, known as the AAMC, called for in 2006 as one of the nation's leading advocates to address a doctor shortage.
