Report of Survey of Howard University College of Medicine.
Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Howard University's School of Medicine is evaluated in this report, in fulfillment of the United States Congress's requirement that the Office of Education annually evaluate one aspect of the Howard University educational program. Evaluation teams, comprised mostly of Office of Education professionals, spent several days at the University meeting with members of the administrative staff, faculty, and students so as to obtain a rounded view of the program. In addition, relevant facilities, laboratories, equipment, documents, reports and libraries were examined. The first part of this report is concerned with nonprogrammatic areas, such as admissions, retention, financial aid, library and research facilities, continuing education, and alumni. The second part, focusing on the academic program, examines such areas as the university organization, budget and finance, curriculum, and specific university departments. The following recommendations are made: (1) the Federal government must make available additional funds for student aid, patient care, and improvements in the school's physical plant; (2) Federal funds must be made available prior to the beginning of the academic year; (3) the school's administration should be decentralized; (4) a faculty practice plan should be adopted as soon as possible; and (5) the research and graduate training programs must be enlarged and enhanced.
