Evaluating Magnet Schools for the Health Professions: Career Aspirations of Hispanic and Non-Minority Students.
Thompson, Bruce; And Others
The present study explored the perceptions of 664 Hispanic and non-minority high school students as regards barriers to entering health professions and the characteristics of health career jobs. Students were enrolled in a high school for the health professions or an enrichment add-on intervention, or were members of an honor society contrast group. The students were remarkably similar in their perceptions of barriers to entering health professions, and in attitudes toward health careers. Differences in student knowledge about health careers were noted. (Author)
