The incoming first-year students include graduates of 71 colleges and universities from 29 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, and nine other countries—Canada, China, Ghana, Indonesia, Jamaica, New Zealand, Nigeria, Peru, and Zimbabwe. Women make up 53 percent of this class; 29 percent are of Asian heritage; and 21 percent are from groups underrepresented in medicine: African American, Cuban, Hispanic, Mexican American, Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Puerto Rican.
