Admission procedures: A survey of current methodology.
Am J Med Technol. 1976 Jan; 42(1):30-6.AJ

Abstract

A survey was conducted by the Department of Medical Technology at Wayne State University to determine current admission procedures for student selection. With more applicants applying for clinical education than can be accepted, the selection process becomes critical. Questionnaires were sent to institutions throughout the United States with accredited programs in medical technology. Among the findings, trends indicate the use of grade point average, separate evaluation of science grades, use of an admissions committee, and a dependence on references and transcripts in selecting students. In addition, the study shows that in all the accredited programs surveyed, including universities, hospitals, Veterans Administration hospitals, and others, an average of 82 students apply each year for the 15 available positions, a ratio of 5.5:1.
