Administrative Considerations in Research in Education for the Health Professions.
Research in Health Professional Education is performed by (1) Directors of Offices of Research in Education, (2) Behavioral Scientists employed by Health Professional schools in faculty positions, and (3) Behavioral Scientists brought in as consultants. Research conducted by Directors of Offices of Research in Education is probably of most use to their institutions because of their knowledge of the needs of their schools and because of their service orientation. Some areas in which research is being conducted are: (1) studies of selection, (2) studies of personality, (3) studies of curriculum, and (4) evaluative studies. The latter 2 are most likely to be supported by the school, and thus are most likely to be engaged in. Whichever areas are chosen will depend on how the faculty and administration perceive the needs of the institution and the function of the Office of Research in Education. Research investigating the worth of innovative teaching methods or materials may have to be supported by outside funds. (Author)
