ore blacks needed
in medical professions
By MYRA GREGORY KNIGHT
Despite the increasing number of black
medical school graduates in recent years,
blacks are dangerously under-represented
in the broad spectrum of medical career
paths, an expert in black medical educa-
tion said Friday.
"I think we really need to have blacks
not just in the rural areas, in the inner
city areas or even in the well-to-do areas,
but also in hospitals, in medical educa- .
tion, in agencies, and in the bureaucratic
environment," Dr. Vivan W. Pinn,
speaker of the fourth annual Zollicoffer
Lecture in the School of Medicine, said.
Pinn, professor and chairman of the
department of pathology at Howard
University School of Medicine, said too
many young black physicians failed to
consider options other than primary care.
This trend could jeopardize the educa
tional gains blacks have made as a result
of affirmative action, she said.
"It is difficult to provide adequate role
models for both black and white students
when only 2.8 percent of the medical
faculty in this country are minorities,"
she told an audience of 200 in Berryhill
Established in 1980, the Zollicoffer
Lectures are intended to expose UNC
medical students to dynamic black
leaders in the field of medicine.
The series commemorates 30 years of
black enrollment in the University's
School of Medicine and is named for Dr.
Lawrence Zollicoffer, the school's fourth
black graduate and one of the founders
of Garwyn Medical Center in Baltimore,
Pinn, a specialist in renal pathology,
who also has held administrative posts at
both Howard and Tufts medical schools.

said black medical education in the
United States has come a long way since
David John Peck became the first black
medical school graduate in 1847.
Blacks now constitute 6.8 percent of
the total first-year enrollment at U.S.
medical schools, she said. The percentage
of black students peaked in 1974 and has
declined only slightly in the early 1980s,
partly because of an increase in the total
number of American medical students.
However, Pinn said, "the data do not
really put in proper perspective where
blacks really are in the field of medicine."
About 50 percent of black medical
graduates enter primary care fields, and
blacks are overrepresentative of physi
cians willing to serve an inner-city
population, she said.
The matching program for placing re
cent medical school graduates into
various residency programs may be part
of the problem, according to Pinn.
Since 1980, the number of possible
residency positions has declined in pro
portion to the number of applications.
This year there were 18,457 residencies
for 22,052 applicants, she said.
The largest number of black residents
enter the primary care fields of pediatrics,
internal medicine and psychiatry, she
said. Those interested in the basic sciences
tend to choose pathology and
"I am not against primary care," Pinn
said. "I think that's important, but I
think we need to be concerned about get
ting our young people into teaching, into
clinical research, and into academic

Jerome Hughes, a spokesman for

Arnold's performance is highly energetic

After graduating from UNC in 1977,
Arnold joined the company of the Ad
vent Theatre in Nashville and landed
leading roles as Cratchet in A Christmas
Carol, Jesse James in the musical
Diamonds Studs and Eilert Lovborg in
At this time he portrayed Christ
delivering the Sermon on the Mount at a
local church, and the encouragment he
received for this was his inspiration to
write the play Paul, a narrative of the
apostle's life. In 1980, he wrote The
Word Made Flesh while working as a
theatre production manager.
Since that time, Arnold, who is artistic
director of the Nightengale Christian
Community Theatre in Nashville, has
periodically traveled to cities all over the
country performing his plays.
"I suddenly realized I didn't want to be
a production manager all my life," Ar
nold said. "I did want to make specific
uses of the talent God had given me, but I
didn't want to be locked into statements
other playwrights had made about the
world. To begin doing that, I had to write
a statement myself."
The Word Made Flesh is part of that
statement for Arnold.
Although he has a new play opening in
Nashville this weekend, Arnold is making
the sacrifice to perform in Chapel Hill
because the area holds special meaning
for him as the beginning of his spiritual
life and professional career.
Randy Russell, a minister at the Chapel
Hill Bible Church who has seen Arnold
perform, said he was most impressed with
the way Arnold presents Christ in a total
ly fresh fashion.
"For example, in one part of the play
Christ is shown dancing at the weeding of
Cana," Russell said. "It has him enjoy
ing life. Many people see Christ as a kind
of wallflower, but in this presentation it
shows that he identifies with mankind
and leads them at the same time."
Tickets for The Word Made Flesh are
available at the Carolina Union from 11
a.m. to 1 p.m. today. All tickets are
$1.50. Tickets will also be available at the
box office of the Paul Green Theatre
before the 7:30 p.m. perfomance.
