A National Program to Expand Educational Opportunity in Hospital and Health Care Administration.
Association of Univ. Programs in Health Administration, Washington, DC.
This report, prepared by the Association of University Programs in Hospital Administration (AUPHA), presents recommendations for increasing the representation of minorities in hospital and health-care administration careers on a nationwide basis. A short-term objective is to increase the representation of minorities in graduate degree programs from the present 3.3 percent to 12 percent in 1976. Major emphasis will be placed on the recruitment and retention of minority group students in the educational pathway and on financial assistance. This report presents four position papers on: (1) the retention of minority group students, by J. Joel May; (2) the recruitment and motivation of these students to careers in hospital administration, by Robert R. Detore; (3) the provision and administration of financial aid, by Haynes Rice; and (4) the placement or professional integration of minority graduates from programs in health and hospital administration, by Peter B. Levine. The report also describes AUPHA recruitment activities; the results of the 1970-71 pilot program which consisted of summer on-the-job experience in a hospital for interested minority group students; and plans for a national recruitment program. Information is also presented on budget requests and projections and projections of required financial support for students. A list of 7 recommendations by the AUPHA Office of Student Affairs concludes the report. (AF)
