Illinois State Board of Higher Education, Springfield.
This report presents recommendations for Illinois' Board of Higher Education's approval in the areas of: (1) general policies for health professions education, (2) the adoption of immediate program priorities to implement the general policy directions in health education programs, and (3) specific recommendations for adjustments in Health Services Education Grants Act (HSEGA) grant rates and rules. A summary is also provided of findings from the May 1993 report entitled "Policy Issues In Education For The Health Professions." Recommendations are based on additional staff analyses and information submitted by colleges, universities, and organizations since the May 1993 report. Specific discussions concern minority representation in health professions education, underserved areas and primary health care, and the need for capacity adjustments in the health professions. A table details capacity recommendations for the following areas: medicine, dentistry, chiropractic, optometry, podiatry, pharmacy, nursing, allied health professions, health services administration, and public health. The report's final sections present, first, the proposed HSEGA grant rates and modifications to the grant rules for each of the professional areas, for Illinois residents and non-residents, and for various educational levels; and, second, the specific staff recommendations in the areas of general policy, immediate program priorities, and adjustments in the HSEGA grant rates and rules.
