Educational Statistics for Selected Health Occupations.
Johnson, Donald W.; Holz, Frank M.
Detailed statistics on education are provided for a number of health occupations. Data are given as far back as 1950-1951 for medical and dental schools, while for schools of public health, the data begin in 1975-1976. Complete 1980 data are provided only for dentistry, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine. Statistical tables are included on the current state-by-state number of students and graduates of all health occupations schools and, in addition, by individual school for several health occupations. Trend data are given for the number and proportion of first-year minority and female students of medicine, osteopathy, dentistry, and registered nursing. Such trend data for other occupations are provided for total students because first-year data were not available for all years. Applicant trend data covering the last two decades are given for schools of medicine and dentistry. Trend data on advanced education are given for medical residents through 1978 and for dental residents through 1980. Additional data include: average first-year medical and dental school tuition trends for the last decade; student expenses, income, and debt; and trends in the number of training programs, students, and graduates for certain allied health occupations. In addition to the tables, an introductory section provides highlights of the data. (SW)
