PCOM Addresses Supreme Court's Affirmative Action Ruling

June 30, 2023

Dear Members of the PCOM Community:

Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that admissions programs at Harvard and UNC, both of which considered race, violated the Constitution. I want to assure you that our College will thoroughly examine this legal decision and its potential effects.

A holistic review of applicants is a manifestation of our whole-person approach and is a widely regarded best practice among collegiate admissions offices. We have long been committed to providing a PCOM education to the broadest range of talented individuals, and that will continue.

Racial and ethnic diversity in the health professions enriches the educational experience and, ultimately, the nation's healthcare workforce. This directly impacts the care of patients and the well-being of the communities we serve.

At PCOM, we will continue to sustain a learning community where diversity, equity and inclusion is respected, embraced and celebrated.

Jay S. Feldstein, DO '81
President and Chief Executive Officer
