MEDICAL CIVIL RIGHTS: THE EXCLUSION OF
PHYSICIANS OF COLOR FROM MANAGED CARE:
BUSINESS OR BIAS?
      By Rene Bow ser  ..................................................................  1

   Historically, physicians of color experienced significant
   barriers in their continued assimilation into the health
   care profession. Although managed care organizations
   do not appear to purposefully discriminate against
   physicians of color, the selection criteria utilized by
   these networks coupled with underlying biases have
   resulted in a disproportionate exclusion of minority
   physicians. By analyzing the norms and practices of
   managed care organizations, the author highlights
   possible causes of this disparity. Additionally, after
   addressing the inadequacy of using current civil rights
   laws to redress discrimination in the medical market,
   the author offers several innovative local, state, and
   federal remedies as potential alternative avenues for
   relief.

   schools' destructive impact upon    generations of
   American Indians. She then examines American Indian
   boarding school survivors' potential legal claims
   against the United States government, including
