Effects of NIGMS Training Programs on Graduate Education in the Biomedical Sciences. An Evaluative Study of the Training Programs of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences 1958-1967.
National Inst. of General Medical Sciences (NIH), Bethesda, MD.
This report was prepared by the National Research Council, at the request of the National Institutes of Health, in an attempt to evaluate the Graduate Research Training Grant Program and Fellowship Program in bioscience. One of the purposes of the study was to collect objective data that would provide answers to such questions as: What have been the patterns of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) support to bioscience departments by academic field, by geographic region, and by type of institution? What have been the effects of this support on PhD production? In addition to supplying objective data, the report includes an evaluation of the findings and a set of recommendations to the NIGMS regarding future policies for the training programs. The report also includes an appendix on the history of federal government support for research and training in the biomedical sciences. (BR)
