Professional Health Education Report.
Colorado Commission on Higher Education, Denver.
This report summarizes a study of costs of health professions training programs from certificate to professional level in Colorado. The main findings include the following: the majority of degree programs are offered at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and at community and local district colleges; there is a high degree of coordination and articulation between levels for similar programs; costs range widely between programs and institutions; tuition and fees cover from less than 20 percent of costs for some programs to more than 60 percent for others; because most institutions have a single tuition rate, tuition is not tied directly to program costs; student demand exceeds capacity in the majority of health care programs; expansion of some programs would be appropriate; programs have been effective in preparing most students for success in licensing examinations; and since health professions programs prepare students for specific careers, students either find employment in their field or go on to further training. Tables provide information on costs and revenue at the Health Sciences Center and at other institutions, on full-time tuition rates at various institutions, on licensing examination success, and on placement and starting salaries.
