Administrative Competencies in Education and the Allied Health Professions.
Morgan, Margaret K., Ed.; Canfield, Albert A., Ed.
A 2-day conference was designed by the staff of the University of Florida Center for Allied Health Instructional Personnel to identify competencies of department chairmen, clinical supervisors, deans of schools of allied health professions, administrators or coordinators of health agencies, and educational leaders in professional or governmental health agencies. Presentations during the conference dealt with expectations of department chairmen and administrators of educational and health care institutions, current developments in educational administration, and the role of field stations in the preparation of educational administrators. From these presentations, approximately 150 characteristics were identified as being desirable for middle management in the health related professions and in educational administration. These 150 characteristics were later screened for duplication, and the list was submitted for corroboration to panels of judges. Included in this report are texts of the presentations and lists of competencies for such administrator functions as group leader, resource developer, educator, communicator, health care supervisor, fiscal officer, and evaluator. A related publication delineating teacher competencies for the field of allied health is available as VT 019 639 in this issue. (SB)
