Jump to navigation. Carol Rumack, MD, says she can relate to some of the struggles today's underrepresented students may face. Carol followed in the footsteps of her mother and father, both physicians. In the late s, she was one of only five women in her medical school class of —and she was told she didn't belong there. My mother was one of only two women in her class in So when people told me you can't do it, I said 'Yes, I can! Today Carol is a professor of radiology and pediatrics, serves as associate dean for graduate medical education, and is a radiologist with a primary interest in neonatal imaging.

Barry is professor emeritus of pediatrics and emergency medicine and still actively engaged in teaching and research. The Rumacks completed their residencies at CU in the s and then joined the faculty, where they continue to make a difference to this day. The fund will one day provide flexible support for underrepresented medical students, especially women and minorities, at CU Anschutz for whatever challenges they may face.

We would like to see that area improve," Barry said. For example, research shows that just 5 percent of U. Hispanics and Native Americans are even more underrepresented. A diverse workforce improves medical care for people who are traditionally underserved, including the elderly, those who live in rural areas, and minorities. Patients are more likely to seek medical care and follow medical recommendations when they can relate to their doctor through a shared culture, background or language, Barry explained.

The School of Medicine is working to increase the diversity of its student body through community outreach, pipeline programs and scholarship support. The medical school has adopted a definition of diversity that embraces race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, religion, political beliefs, rural upbringing and socioeconomic status.

In an annual class size of , the number of medical students at CU Anschutz who fall within this definition has increased from 7 percent in to 28 percent. The Rumacks hope that their scholarship and support of the Mile High Medical Society scholarship will continue to bolster that effort for future generations of medical students by helping with the costs of such items like childcare, transportation, tuition, and other needed items all which help contribute to a student's success and sense of belonging at CU Anschutz.

We hope our gifts inspires the same philosophy which is why we've tried to give while we've been part of the school. Said Carol: "What we want to say by creating this scholarship fund is that we believe diversity is a value and we want to help support it with a scholarship. We want to give students the advantage of knowing CU School of Medicine is a place that really does care.
