New Initiatives - Allied Health Professions.
Romberg, Paul F.
This paper reviews some of the things that can and need to be done in the area of allied health professions. The federal government must be willing to commit funds in the direction of the allied health fields. A start has been made, but more help is needed. Aid must also come from state governments and private sources. The colleges and universities will have to put forth a united and joint effort also. Cooperative planned programs are a must if those in higher education are to do the job the public expects of them. Since there is no lobby, the educators in this field must become a powerful and potent lobby, publicizing the needs of the profession, and meeting the demands of the medical profession, of the students, and of society.
