The Missions and Administration of the 1980 University Medical Center in the United States.
Elder, Owen C., Jr.
The purpose of this study was to obtain the expert opinion of university medical center administrators throughout the United States as to (1) the missions most important to the university medical center of 1980, and (2) the administrative elements which would be necessary to carry out the missions. Two questionnaires were administered to the United States membership of the Association for Academic Health Centers. Seventy-seven percent completed the first questionnaire, concerning missions, and 73% completed the second concerning the administrative elements necessary to carry out the missions. Eleven missions and 20 administrative elements were agreed upon as important by the respondents. This could be utilized as a model for planning and development in individual institutions if adapted to the unique characteristics of each institution and its service area. (Author/MJM)
