* Native American includes Native Alaskans and Native Hawaiians.
† Mainland and Commonwealth Puerto Rican are defined by state of legal residence.

Note: From 2002–03 until 2012–13, applicants had the option of reporting both their race and ethnicity alone or in combination with some other race or ethnicity – see Tables 3A, 3B and 3C. Starting in 2013–14, applicants report their race and ethnicity under a single question about how applicants self–identify – see Table 4. These changes in methodology mean that data cannot be reported in Table 2 for 2002–03 and beyond because the data are not directly comparable to earlier years. The data regarding race/ethnic groups in Table 2 are limited to United States citizens and permanent residents, so columns do not add to 100 percent. Applicants and Acceptees columns include U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and foreign applicants and acceptees.

Note: Starting in 2013-14, the methodology for acquiring race and ethnicity information in the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) was updated. Rather than one question asking an applicant's Hispanic origin and a second question asking an applicant's race, the Hispanic origin and race categories are now listed together under one question about how applicants self-identify. This question allows multiple responses. Additionally, a new response option, "Other", was added. The change in methodology means that data collected in 2013-14 and beyond is not directly comparable to prior years. If an individual selects multiple race and ethnicity categories, all responses are counted in each of the corresponding categories. Therefore, the sum of the categories may be greater than the total number of applicants and accepted applicants. Data from 2013-14 on derived from AAMC Data Warehouse: Applicant Matriculant File (AAMC DW: AMF), AMCAS as of 12/2014.

* Beginning in 1997-98 the category "Native American" included American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians. Prior to that it included only Native Americans and Alaska Natives.
† After 1999-00, Unknown includes foreign students, students with unknown citizenship, and students with unknown race/ethnicity.
‡ Includes new entrants and those repeating the initial year.
§ Data derived from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) Part II Questionnaire. The part II was administered in the spring.
|| Counts for 2002-03 may indicate races and ethnicities in combination or alone, thus they do not add to the unduplicated total first-year enrollment.

Note: From 2002-03 until 2012-13, applicants had the option of reporting both their race and ethnicity alone or in combination with some other race or ethnicity - see Tables 6A and 6B. Starting in 2013-14, applicants report their race and ethnicity under a single question about how applicants self-identify - see Table 7. These changes in methodology mean that the data cannot be reported in Table 5 for 2003-04 and beyond that is directly compared to prior years. Races and ethnicities are reported only for U.S. citizens and permanent residents; prior to 1981 only U.S. citizens were included. From 1998-99 forward, Commonwealth and Mainland Puerto Rican status has been calculated based on state of legal residence.

Note: These data include new entrants and those repeating the initial year. Starting in 2013-14, the methodology for acquiring race and ethnicity information in the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) was updated. Rather than one question asking an applicant's Hispanic origin and a second question asking an applicant's race, the Hispanic origin and race categories are now listed together under one question about how applicants self-identify. This question allows multiple responses. Additionally, a new response option, "Other", was added. The change in methodology means that data collected in 2013-14 and beyond is not directly comparable to prior years. If an individual selects multiple race and ethnicity categories, all responses are counted in each of the corresponding categories. Therefore, the sum of the categories may be greater than the total first-year enrollment.

Note: Races and ethnicities are reported only for U.S. citizens and permanent residents; prior to 1981, only U.S. citizens were included. Since 1998-99, Commonwealth and Mainland Puerto Rican status is calculated based on state of legal residence at the time of application to medical school. Starting in 1992-93, data were derived from AAMC Data Warehouse: Student (AAMC DW: Student), Student Records System (SRS) section reflecting actively enrolled students as of 10/31 of the enrollment year. Data starting in 1992-93 may be slightly undercounted (less than one percent) due to insufficient enrollment status information. From 2002-03 until 2012-13, applicants had the option of reporting both their race and ethnicity alone or in combination with some other race and ethnicity - see Tables 9A and 9B. Starting in 2013-14, applicants report their race and ethnicity under a single question about how applicants self-identify. These changes in methodology mean that data cannot be reported in Table 8 for 2002-03 and beyond that is directly comparable to earlier years.

The table displays the racial and ethnic characteristics of enrolled students in U.S. medical schools from 2013-2014 through 2015-2016.I6 Enrollment includes the number of students in medical school, including students on a leave of absence, on October 31 of each year shown. Enrollment does not include students with graduated, dismissed, withdrawn, deceased, never enrolled, completed fifth pathway, did not complete fifth pathway, or degree revoked statuses.The "Multiple Race/Ethnicity" category includes those who selected more than one race/ethnicity response.

Note: In 2013-2014, the methodology for acquiring race/ethnicity information was updated. Rather than one question asking an applicant's Hispanic origin and a second question asking the applicant's race, the Hispanic origin and race response options are now listed together under a single question about how applicants self-identify. Applicants could select multiple response options. The “Non-U.S. Citizen and Non-Permanent Resident” category may include students with unknown citizenship.

* From 2000-01, "Puerto Rican" is reported without splitting into Mainland and Commonwealth subcategories.
† From 2002-03, counts may include race and ethnicity responses alone or in combination with other race and ethnicity responses.
‡ From 2005-06, "Cuban" is reported as a separate ethnicity. Prior to 2005-06, Cubans were included in the "Other Hispanic" category.
§ In 1997-98 the category "Native American" was redefined to include American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians. Prior to 1997-98 and after 2000-01 this category included only Native Americans and Alaska Natives. Native Hawaiian is reported as a separate category starting with 2001-02 data.
|| From 1992-93 through 1999-00, "Unknown" may or may not include foreign persons and those with unknown citizenship.

Note: Race and ethnicity data are reported only for U.S. citizens and permanent residents; prior to 1981, only U.S. citizens were included. Percent of Total Graduates may not add to 100 as multiple race and ethnicity responses are permitted. Statistics for 1971-72 through 1981-82 were derived from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) Part II Survey. Prior to 1978-79, the LCME Part II only collected race/ethnicity data for the following categories: Afro-American, American Indian, Mexican American, Mainland Puerto Rican, and All Other Students. After 1981-82, statistics are derived from AAMC Data Warehouse: Student (AAMC DW: Student), Student Records System (SRS). Data from 2001-02 forward are derived from AAMC DW: Student, SRS; AAMC DW: AMF, American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS) as of 12/2014.
