Early black physicians not only became skilled practitioners, they became educators and trailblazers, paving the way for future physicians, surgeons, and nurses and opening doors to better health care for African American communities. Opening Doors: Contemporary African American Academic Surgeons recognizes the achievements of these pioneers by examining this long tradition, and highlights contemporary surgeons and educators who exemplify excellence in their fields and who continue the practice of mentoring younger generations of African American physicians."
