Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) is a historically black institution established to recruit and train minority and other students as physicians, biomedical scientists, and public health practitioners who are committed to the primary healthcare needs of the underserved. It was established as a two-year educational program in the basic sciences in April 1975 as The School of Medicine at Morehouse College.
The School has a unique history. In 1973, Morehouse College received a federal grant to conduct a feasibility study. The study focused on the development of a two-year program to train students for careers as primary care physicians who would work in medically underserved areas. The study revealed the severe shortage of African- American and other minority physicians in the United States, and particularly in Georgia. In addition, the study highlighted a general shortage of physicians for rural areas and the inner cities of the nation.
