Overview of Graduate Programs in Public Health Outside Schools of Public Health, 1981-82.
Holmstrom, Engin Inel
A 2-year project that identified and described characteristics of graduate programs outside schools of public health is briefly summarized. The project also established linkages among professional organizations representing graduates from these programs. Recommendations of the advisory committee, which was composed of representatives from these organizations, are also offered. The great majority of graduate programs were located on campuses usually identified with high levels of research activity. For 1981-1982, 317 graduate programs located outside schools of public health were identified in the fields of community health nutrition, environmental and occupational health, epidemiology, health services administration and planning, health education, health statistics, community health and preventive medicine, and residency programs in preventive medicine and dentistry. Information is presented on program characteristics, program size, faculty, student characteristics, racial/ethnic minority representation, and sex distribution. It is recommended that there be an exchange of information and data collection methodologies regarding graduate programs in public health and the professions. Recommendations for future research are also offered. (SW)
