The Administration of Education for the Health Professions: A Time for Reappraisal.
Hogness, John R.
Past and current practices as well as anticipated changes in administrative patterns in the health sciences are reviewed in the general context of the changing patterns of administration in higher education. The changes discussed include those in financial support, priorities, controls, and expectations. Several specific questions are addressed: (1) Should a health sciences center remain a part of the university or should it separate and become an independent mini-university? (2) What should be the role of the chief administrative officer of the health sciences center? (3) What could be done better to integrate the health sciences schools and their programs? (4) Should the basic sciences departments in the health sciences be constituted as a separate college in the health sciences center? (5) Should universities and their health sciences centers continue to own and manage hospitals, and, if so, should university hospitals and their directors be under the management and control of the dean of the medical school or the vice-president for health affairs? (6) To what extent should health sciences center operations and facilities and their staff be governed by outside governmental planning and regulatory agencies? (LBH)
