The findings of this study will be useful to policymakers based on a careful analysis of demographic, attitudinal, and experiential factors in association with enrollment in, attrition from, and graduation from MD/PhD-degree programs. Potential targets for interventions aimed at increasing the demographic diversity of the physician-scientist workforce engaged in biomedical research will be identified.
