Baccalaureate Health Administration Graduates: A Decade Review.
Tourigny, Ann Ward; LaFrance, Shawn V.
Results of a 1981 survey of graduates of baccalaureate health administration programs are presented. An initial information gathering survey of reputed college programs in health administration, the Health Administration Program Survey, was conducted to develop a listing of baccalaureate recipients in health administration. A questionnaire, the Baccalaureate Graduates Survey, was mailed and completed by 1,170 graduates. In addition, a telephone survey of selected nonrespondents was undertaken. Research objectives were as follows: (1) to identify personal characteristics, academic background, work experience, and current employment status; (2) to detect employment patterns of those graduates who are currently employed in the health field; and (3) to assess health-related positions currently held by graduates, specifically in terms of titles, locations, organizational information, areas of responsibility, type and level of positions, and salaries. An additional objective was to assess the views of health administrators concerning the knowledge and skills needed to function successfully in health-related organizations. Appendices include questionnaires and a list of participating institutions. (SW)
