A coalition of groups, including the American Academy of Family Physicians, has already launched an initiative called “25 X 2030.”
The goal is getting 25 percent of medical school students to choose family medicine as their specialty by the year 2030. It includes matching interested students with mentors and role models.
The pandemic is apparently already prompting a surge in students enrolling in public health programs.
The Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health reports a 20 percent increase in applications to master’s in public health programs for the current academic year.
At Brown University, its small public health master’s program spiked 75 percent. The university had to extend its application deadline by a month after demand increased as the pandemic hit its stride in the spring.
