Minorities in Allied Health Education. A Comprehensive Summary of the Report--January 1980.
This summary report provides data from two surveys conducted in 1973-74 and 1975-76 by the American Society of Allied Health Professions and the American Hospital Association to assess the representation of racial and ethnic minorities in allied health fields through their enrollment in educational programs. Section 1 reviews the methodology used to survey all nonmilitary hospitals, excluding prison and Justice Department hospitals, in the United States and associated areas, and accredited collegiate institutions. Sections 2 and 3 pose 25 critical questions, which are followed by a data table providing the statistical information to answer the questions posed. Critical comments are presented as quotations and highlighted in rectangular boxes. Other comments are also made. Section 2 addresses questions regarding enrollment including minority enrollment by setting and year, by occupation and award level, by regional geographic distribution, and by enrollment in minority institutions. Section 3 considers funding (federal government). Enrollment by racial/ethnic group (Black, Native American, Asian, Hispanic) is summarized in Section 4. Section 5 makes recommendations concerning information needs and corrective approaches. (YLB)
