The Development of a Format for a Policy and Procedure Manual and Process for Implementation for the Hahnemann College of Allied Health Professions: College Governance.
Gross, Raymond C.
A study undertaken to develop a framework or format for a policy and procedures manual at the Hahnemann Medical College of Allied Health Professions is reported. Included in this study were plans for the initial implementation, modification, and revision of the manual. The study was prompted by the observation that administrators had no ready reference to guide them in routine and non-routine operations and decision-making activities. Data-gathering involved the collection of models of procedure manuals from other institutions of higher education, from medical schools, and traditional institutions. Personal interviews with college officials were also conducted. From these data, the study committee drafted a plan for the development of the college's own procedures manual. The plan consists of a suggested outline for the manual. The proposed manual consists of six major sections: (1) a general section on the history, philosophy, and administrative procedures of the university; (2) programs of study; (3) student life; (4) faculty and personnel; (5) resources; and (6) research, evaluation, and planning. The study group recommended the adoption of the manual and its circulation to the Medical School and Graduate School administrators. A copy of the proposed manual is appended. (PJM/Author)
