  • Report from Committee on Health Professions Education Programs .pdf (8/2003)
    This item presents the findings and recommendations of the Board's Committee on Health Professions Education Programs. The Committee was charged with assessing educational needs in the health professions and the extent to which Illinois higher education is supplying qualified professionals to address these needs; reviewing enrollment, graduation, and cost trends over the last ten years; reviewing the Health Services Education Grants Act program and recommending any adjustments necessary to coincide with policy recommendations, strengthen program accountability, and ensure that formula components align health education programs to statewide goals; and reviewing current Board policies concerning health education professions and recommend changes as necessary to address current and projected needs.

    The report concludes that the current policies are adequate and should be maintained. The report recommends adjustments to the Board's priorities and guidelines to reflect current statewide needs in the health professions. Adjustments to these priorities will necessitate changes to the programs currently supported under the Health Services Education Grants Act (HSEGA) program, ensuring that state resources are targeted to those areas of highest need. The Committee recommends that health professions policies and priorities be reviewed every four years, new grant categories to address emerging needs for doctoral programs in nursing and physical therapy, and additional accountability measures for the HSEGA program.
