AlThukair, Danah Khalid
Online Submission
This paper reviews two training and internship programs of the College of Applied Medical Science in Saudi Arabia against the standards of the National Commission for Academic Accreditation and Assessment (NCAAA) to see how well the programs come in their quest for accreditation. Disclosures by students, interns, alumni, coordinators, and supervisors of the Health Information Management and Technology (HIMT) and Physical Therapy (PT) programs reveal the programs successfully meet accreditation requirements, except in two areas: (1) bringing students and interns together to reflect about their experiences and assess the environment of hospitals to protect their safety and (2) coordinating and communicating by coordinators with supervisors at the hospitals. The HIMT program adheres to standards and satisfies its users more than the PT program does. The gap between their results points out deficiencies that need to be satisfied in order to allow the programs to meet NCAAA requirements for accreditation. This study can be used to help narrow that gap. Included are appendices: (A) Standards of Field Work Activities Of NCAAA; (B) Training/Internship Questionnaire; (C) Interview Guide Questions; (D) Informed Consents (Students, Supervisors, Coordinators); (E) Analysis Results (Questionnaire); and (F) Analysis Results (Interviews).
