205.018 Hopwood v Texas


205.018 Hopwood v. Texas: The impact of Hopwood v. Texas has had a negative effect on underrepresented minorities in Texas medical schools, and the Texas Medical Association therefore, supports efforts to reverse this negative effect, understanding that specific measures of support will be acted on individually as they arise in the future. TMA supports continuation of the minority scholarship program for underrepresented minority students at Texas medical schools to offset the void of such scholarships at Texas institutions and an increase in the amount of the individual scholarships as funds become available (BOT Rep. 20-I-98; amended CME Rep. 1-A-08; amended CME Rep. 2-A-18).
