This commitment extends to increasing the number of minority physicians available to serve the nation's ever-growing minority population, expanding areas of research undertaken by medical academics, and raising the general cultural competence of all physicians

David A. Kindig, MD, PhDRobert Wood Johnson 1998
Race and ethnicity appear to be important factors in how patients select a physician. Minority patients are five times more likely to report having a minority physician than are other patients. The phenomenon is most pronounced among Hispanic patients, who are 19 times more likely to have a Hispanic physician.
