MHS Professors Metzl and Petty publish new study in Social Science & Medicine.

In a new study to be published in Social Science & Medicine, three Vanderbilt researchers – lead author Jonathan M. Metzl, along with JuLeigh Petty and Oluwatunmise V. Olowojoba — have evaluated the curriculum and found that students in the program understood race at a deeper level, and attained higher rates of acceptance to medical schools, than traditional science premeds.
