La enseñanza de la salud pública en la universidad : Responsabilidades de una escuela de salud pública
MetadataShow full item record
University instruction in health must be provided for three groups of students: (1) those who should have some knowledge of personal and community health as a part of their broad cultural development, compensating in part for the gross inadequacies of their earlier education; (2) those who are enrolled in various professional curricula that require some knowledge of health; and (3) those with prior professional education which must be supplemented with graduate-level instruction to prepare them for public health employment. Provision for university instruction in health can be made by: (1) assigning to each component of the university responsibility for such instruction for its own students, including graduate instruction of the various professional groups being trained for public health employment; (2) cration of a school of public health which will limit its instruction to graduate instruction of various professional groups to be employed in community health programs, leaving instruction of all other students to their respective colleges as under (1) above; and (3) creation of a school or departmetn of public health responsible for instruction in health for all parts of the university. While each system has its advantages and disadvantages, the thrid pattern appears to be best suited to the needs of most universities and to possess advantages that far outweigh the disadvantages
