Hospital-Junior College Survey.
American Hospital Association, Chicago, IL.
The purpose of this survey was to find the extent to which hospitals are working with local junior colleges by providing a hospital clinical setting for the education and training of students in health service occupations. Of the 6039 general hospitals in the United States and Puerto Rico surveyed (excluding those under federal control), 5372 (89 percent) responded. The following information is discussed in this report: (1) which health occupations students are preparing for in hospitals; (2) distribution of curricula for a given occupation among hospitals of various sizes; (3) a. the number of curricula for each occupation found in hospitals of a given size; b. the proportion of that number to the total number of curricula offered within hospitals of a given size; (4) the number of occupations for which junior college students are receiving clinical education in a given hospital; and (5) distribution of hospitals, by size, serving as clinical education sites for one or more occupations. These data can serve as base points for reference to identify patterns and rate of growth or change and can serve as indices for planning the creation or continuation of health occupation curricula.
