Description & Coverage
Description:

Today, there is a significant need for healthcare professionals across disciplines and sectors as the world faces unprecedented health challenges and adopts innovative healthcare technologies. Despite this demand for a competent and eager healthcare workforce, the education and processes to becoming a qualified healthcare professional are complex and intricate, which may turn people away from this path due to confusion, fear, or doubt. In order to encourage and support those involved in medical education, further study on the best practices and challenges of developing confident and capable health professionals is required.

The Handbook of Research on Developing Competencies for Pre-Health Professional Students, Advisors, and Programs provides insight into the critical skills and expertise essential for those interested in pursuing employment in healthcare as well as current procedures and training to support them during their academic and professional careers. Covering topics such as lifelong learning skills, healthcare professions, and strategic learning, this major reference work is crucial for advisors, nurses, healthcare professionals, academicians, researchers, practitioners, scholars, instructors, and students.

Reviews & Statements

"Despite significant demand for healthcare professionals in the workforce, including medicine, nursing, and numerous other health-related fields, admission to health professional graduate programs is highly competitive, with less than half of all medical school applicants gaining admission annually. The application process is nuanced, complex, and costly, which can often be a significant barrier to otherwise highly qualified students, particularly those from backgrounds underrepresented in the healthcare workforce. This book will serve to inform undergraduate administrators, faculty, and staff in the development of students who wish to be future health professionals so they may best support students to successfully navigate through the complex academic and professional development and application process. Chapters will focus on advising models, pedagogy regarding academic preparation, facilitation of extracurricular activities, and successful application preparation aligned with the core competencies expected of pre-health professional students entering graduate programs and the healthcare workforce."

– Profs. Rohini Ganjoo (The George Washington University, USA) and Lisa S. Schwartz (The George Washington University, USA)
