abstract
For greater than a century higher education has provided the means for the immigrant class to enter the American mainstream. In no other field has this been more apparent than in the pursuit of a medical education to become a physician. This goal was most evident among the first and second generations of Eastern European and Russian Jews following the first "Great Wave" of immigration (1880 to 1914) and the Southern and Southeast Asians who arrived in the next great wave of immigration (1965 to the present). The children of these immigrant families entered medical schools in numbers far exceeding their other immigrant cohort groups and in greater proportions than their percentage of the population.
