New Haven Institute of Allied Health Careers. Final Report.
Turner, Charles E., Jr.
The New Haven Institute of Allied Health Careers has been involved in a project to (1) assist educationally disadvantaged students in preparing themselves for health careers opportunities through guidance services and (2) address the lack of access to and mobility within the health professions systems through educational change. Made up of a consortium of independent institutions, the institute worked as an extraschool agency supplementing school career education curricula through: institute staff experiences for grades 10-12. Program components are described and include: academic assistance, guidance services, career and educational exposure, and interinstitutional educational planning. Component methodology, evaluation and description of programs developed, analysis and demographic information regarding the 200 selected student affiliates, guidance personnel perceptions, effectiveness of career exposure, anticipated job opportunities in Allied Health and the employability of high school graduates, and program related forms and questionnaires are presented. The institute has attempted to nurture an adequate enough minority student constituency to encourage more responsive admission policies in area allied health professions programs, and 100 of its past graduates are attending college.
