Minorities & Women in the Health Fields: Applicants, Students, and Workers. Health Manpower References.
Philpot, Wilbertine P.; Bernstein, Stuart
A comprehensive look at the current and future supply of women and minorities in the health professions and in health professions schools is provided in this statistical report. Its data are more extensive than those presented in either of two earlier reports, hence, it can prove useful in assisting analysis of the composition of the nation's health manpower supply, as the preface notes. The two major sections consist of Racial/Ethnic Tables, where most current data on minorities may be found, and Male/Female Tables, where essentially the same information is cross-classified by sex. Major categories are medicine, osteopathic medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, podiatry, veterinary medicine, nursing, and allied health, with breakdown by categories such as applicants and enrollments, academic years, percent and number of practitioners in each field, degrees awarded, and individual schools.
