BLACK PHYSICIANS: AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY

Project: Research project

Description

The objective of this proposed project is to prepare an annotated
bibliography on the social history of black physicians in the United
States. This document will be based on the literature related to the (1)
medical education of black physicians, (2) black women physicians, (3)
geographic distribution of black physicians, (4) social science studies of
black physicians, and (5) the biographic and autobiographic materials. The
specific aims of this project are: (1) to collect and organize data about
the historical and contemporary practice of medicine among black doctors;
(2) to publish a secondary resource document for practitioners and other
professionals in the fields of medicine and health and the social sciences;
(3) to acquaint health professionals and researchers with reference
materials about black physicians; (4) to increase interest in the
non-medical and social aspects of black physicians as professionals and
community persons; and (5) to document data pertaining to the historical
contributions and plight of black physicians. This document is intended as a secondary research tool for professionals
and investigators who are interested in black physicians and minority
health care issues.
