Allied Health Education Programs in Junior Colleges/1970.
National Institutes of Health (DHEW), Bethesda, MD. Div. of Allied Health Manpower.
This directory of allied health programs in junior colleges was compiled to provide a comprehensive source of allied health training programs in two-year colleges and to provide data on which to establish national, regional, State, and local priorities for health manpower education. It may also serve as a supplementary reference for guidance counselors and for professional organizations. Information was obtained from a questionnaire sent to all the institutions (1,038) listed in the "1970 Junior College Directory" and returned by 1,030. Of these institutions, 708 offered, or planned to offer, at least one course in allied health education. The Directory is organized into several inventories, which constitute cross-references of the information obtained: (1) programs by State, in which each institution has all its programs listed--basic occupational education, short-term and future programs; (2) programs by type of allied health specialty; these, in turn, have been divided according to location by State and institutions; (3) future programs arranged by type of program; and (4) short-term programs by type of allied health specialty. Types of programs inventoried are: administrative, biomedical engineering and instrumentation, emergency, environmental control, laboratory, medical care assistants, medical records and office, mental health and psychiatric, miscellaneous, nursing, optical and visual care, radiological, and rehabilitation.
