Inventory of State Appropriations Supporting Education for the Health Professions. FY 1971-72.
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, DC.
This report summarizes available data on tax-based state appropriations in support of health professional education in the 50 states and Puerto Rico for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1971 and ending June 30, 1972. The appropriation figures were obtained through a detailed review of all state budget documents and fiscal reports available to the researchers in 1972 and 1973. The source documents included: state executive and legislative budgets, budget analysis reports, and supplemental budgetary issuances. In addition, state university financial statements were reviewed to clarify or validate specific appropriations items. The body of the report presents both a summarization of state patterns of support, and a breakdown of individual state profiles. The state profiles illustrate the broad spectrum and variation in budget formats and line-item listings. However, the differences were brought as far as possible into some degree of uniformity by the format of this report and were referenced accordingly. This report reviews state appropriations, i.e., appropriations from the general fund derived solely from taxes on individuals, corporations, etc. as a source of financial support for health profession education and training. Other broad areas of financial support are: federal government, local government, and private agencies. The private sector covers a broad range, which includes, in addition to grants, loans, scholarships, fellowships, etc., the tuition paid by students enrolled in educational institutions. A glossary of terms is included. (Author/PG)
