The Endocrine Society Publishes White Paper Calling for Greater Minority Participation in Clinical Research
Date:12/5/2007

h Advisory Boards at appropriate sites.

-- Establish training programs for community-based physicians who are interested and willing to perform clinical research.

-- Participate in an NIH-sponsored summit to plan a nationwide consortium to provide training, mentoring, startup funds, and ongoing opportunities for participation of diverse community physicians in clinical trials.

-- With respect to increasing the pipeline, medical schools should increase enrollment of medical students based on projected population changes over the next 30 years.

-- Medical schools should offer training in Good Clinical Research Practice and Cultural Competencies to all trainees and staff members who may directly or peripherally engage in clinical research.

This activity, including development of the white paper, was funded by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
