Impact of the Allied Health Basic Improvement Grant Program on Health Education Programs. Final Report.
The Basic Improvement Grant Program of the Allied Health Professions Education Improvement Act of 1966 was designed to offer financial stimulation and assistance at institutions with training programs for certain allied health occupations. Information was obtained on enrollments and faculty for the four-year period 1966-67 through 1969-70 and on graduates for 1961-62 through 1968-69. Analysis of trends shows that enrollments, graduates, and faculty increased at similar rates. Programs granting degrees at the baccalaureate level showed higher rates of growth than those granting associate degrees or their equivalent. Further data suggest that recruitment of students focused more on those already in college contrasted with new students. During 1966-69, enrollment and graduation of males and black students increased at a rate exceeding the rate of growth of all students. However, in 1969 these groups still comprised a relatively small proportion of total enrollments and graduates. (Author)
