University Park, Pa.,—To accelerate its four-year program to
prepare _students for positions in health planning and health care
e4ministration, the College of, Human Development at The Penn
sylvania State University has been awarded a $462,000 grant by the
National Institutes of Health, Bureau of Health Manpower.
A critical shortage of trained personnel exists in health plann
ing agencies at all levels of government, Dr. Marshall W. Raf fel
xted. He cited state and local health departments, public and pri
vate general hospitals,. mental health centers and hospitals, neigh
borhood health centers, health and welfare councils, group practice
clinics, Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
The NIH grant, he points out, is evidence that the federal gov
erAment is concerned about the manpower shortage and interest
ed in four-year •programs that can produce personnel more rapidly
than graduate programs whose output is necessarily limited.
The Penn State program, introduced last Fall, is one of the few
four-year health planning and administration programs offered in
this country and the only one that emphasizes preparation for pol
icy planning and administration.
The new grant will permit development and expansion of the
Penn State program in anticipation of an increased student enroll
ment.beginirbg in the Fall of 1970.
With sufficient interest, introductory courses may also be offer
ed* on some Commonwealth Campuses, Dr. Raffel said.
Dr. Raffel emphasized, however, that "openings available to
four-year graduates are rewarding financially, and satisfying in
terms of helping people have better lives through improved health
