The thinking is that camaraderie, networking and a defined support system might ease isolation and lead to a boost in numbers of Black male physicians.

The medical students become CPR-certified but they also know how to stop life-threatening bleeding with a tourniquet or wound packing and how to stabilize a cervical spine or apply a cervical collar. They can assist with supplemental oxygen or positive pressure ventilation. The training program has been in place at the college for a decade.
