Allied Health Occupations Project, Title I, Phase I.
Jensen, Mary E.
This community college investigated the demand and supply of health manpower needs in the community for purposes of developing and implementing appropriate programs for the college. A three-part questionnaire was prepared to gather data on manpower needs, educational programs, and prospective educational consumers. Manpower needs and existing educational programs were examined with personnel in health care agencies. Data on prospective educational consumers were obtained by interviewing students in the public and parochial high schools in the district. The largest number of employees for all classifications were in the 26 to 35 and 46 and older age groups. Younger persons tended to be employed in the nursing, dental, and pharmacy offices, while older employees were found in the rehabilitation service classification. There was also a substantial number of employees in the dental and office occupations. Recommendations for program revision were made as a result of the survey. (Author/GB)
