Pharmacy Education at U. T. Austin as Reported by Students of the College of Pharmacy, Fall Semester 1982.
Holahan, Carole K.; And Others
The attitudes of 186 pharmacy students at the University of Texas, Austin, were surveyed in 1982. Information is provided on student characteristics, including: class level, age, ethnicity, marital status, employment, student status, college background, participation in educational and university organizations, and future plans. Students' ratings of 10 pre-pharmacy courses and 13 pharmacy courses in terms of the degree of preparation provided are examined, along with ratings of 15 aspects of academic life at the university, and 13 College of Pharmacy services. Specific concerns included out-of-class availability of the instructor, teacher attitudes toward students, preparation received for professional practice, admissions and registration procedures, the condition of the pharmacy classroom and facilities, the academic advising system, and college-sponsored social and recreational activities. Results of a second questionnaire that was administered to students in their fifth and sixth professional semesters are also covered, as are results of a third questionnaire that was administered to sixth-semester students. It is noted that many of the fifth- and sixth-semester students attend other campuses, including San Antonio and Galveston. The three questionnaires and extensive statistical tables of study findings are included. (SW)
