This toolkit accompanies our study Health Professions: Capitalizing on Creative Disruption. The study pinpoints long-term academic program opportunities in the health professions—also known as allied health professions—for COE units. The resulting Health Professions Growth Portfolio consists of the following programs: Health Informatics, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Social Work, and Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy.
This toolkit is designed for deans and program directors to help assess the opportunities in the growth portfolio. The toolkit’s resources are based on EAB research and interviews with deans and program directors of health professions programs. While the toolkit focuses on opportunities in the programs listed below, the program opportunity evaluations may be applied to a wide range of health care programs.
