Practice patterns of black physicians: results of a survey of Howard University College of Medicine alumni.


Over 600 Howard University medical alumni of seven representative classes graduating from 1955 to 1975 were surveyed by questionnaire in 1975 and 1976. Replies of the 252 black respondents confirm that these graduates are providing substantial care to blacks, the economically disadvantaged, and residents of the inner city. Survey findings reaffirm the necessity to train more black physicians and to provide data on current and future practice patterns. Comparisons are made between the practice patterns of earlier (1955 to 1970) and later (1973 to 1975) black graduates. A general bibliography of publications relevant to the practice patterns of black physicians is included.
