Health Manpower Perspective: 1967.
Public Health Service (DHEW), Washington, DC. Bureau of Health Manpower.
DESPITE SHARP INCREASES, THE SUPPLY OF HEALTH MANPOWER CONTINUES TO BE OUTSTRIPPED BY THE DEMAND WHILE THE NEED FOR 3,700,000 TO 4,000,000 WORKERS BY 1975 IS COMPLICATED BY THE SERIOUS DEMAND FOR PROFESSIONAL AND TECHNICAL WORKERS AND FOR LEADERS AND TEACHERS. PREPARATION FOR THE HEALTH FIELD HAS INCREASINGLY BECOME THE RESPONSIBILITY OF UNIVERSITIES, COLLEGES, AND VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICAL SCHOOLS, WITH 650 UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES OFFERING PROGRAMS IN ONE OR MORE ALLIED HEALTH OCCUPATIONS AT THE BACCALAUREATE AND GRADUATE LEVELS. IN FISCAL 1967, FEDERAL GOVERNMENT EXPENDITURES FOR EDUCATING HEALTH SERVICE PERSONNEL, ADMINISTERED BY SEVEN GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, TOTALED ABOUT $400,000,000. SUGGESTED APPROACHES TO THE PROBLEM OF THE HEALTH MANPOWER SHORTAGE INCLUDE BETTER UTILIZATION OF SCHOOL FACILITIES AND FACULTIES, IMPROVED RECRUITMENT PROGRAMS, GREATER ATTENTION TO REFRESHER PROGRAMS, PROVISION OF CAREER DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES AND ATTENTION TO ADVANCED ACADEMIC PLACEMENT, GREATER FOCUS UPON CONTINUING EDUCATION, EXAMINATION OF THE PRESENT UTILIZATION OF HEALTH PERSONNEL AS A BASIS FOR DEVELOPING NEW TYPES OF HEALTH WORKERS, MORE REGIONAL PLANNING AND IMPROVING PAY AND WORKING CONDITIONS OF HEALTH SERVICE PERSONNEL. APPENDIXES INCLUDE A CHART OF FEDERAL AID AVAILABLE FOR TRAINING HEALTH SERVICE PERSONNEL. (JK)
