The University and the Health Professions.
Siporin, Rae Lee
This report concerns the restructuring of educational programs to meet the nation's need for a more adequate system of delivery of health care. The principal perspective is that of a concerned administrator in higher education not that of one in the health professions. Objectives of the report include a discussion and definition of health; an examination of the changing nature of health care; a study of the role of medicine as compared to that of health; consideration of the nature of medical education and its consequent relation to the university; questions about what constitutes the health professions in the University; suggestions of ways in which the University can provide leadership for the health professions; and indications of the organization and structuring of the various components of the health professions in the university.
