An Exploratory Study of Women in the Health Professions Schools. Volume IX: Women in Public Health.
Urban and Rural Systems Associates, San Francisco, CA.
As part of a larger study of the barriers to women in the schools and practice of eight health professions, the study on women in public health involved extensive interviews with administrators, faculty, and students in the professional schools. From this and other data gathered emerge the three components of the report: (1) an overview of the profession--its history, organization, work focus, and the role and status of women in it; (2) recommendations concerning some of the problems women face, that can best be addressed by the schools themselves or the professional associations; and (3) direct quotes from the interviews that illustrate the unique experiences of women and the extent to which these experiences serve as barriers to success in the schools. Some data tables are included. (MSE)
