An Examination of Individual Competencies Among Students Matriculating Through an Undergraduate Healthcare Administration Program
MetadataShow full metadata
Descriptive and psychometric analyses were conducted to examine alternate forms of comprehensive exit examinations for an undergraduate healthcare administration program. The variables: a) comprehensive demographics; b) personality type; c) mentor presence; and, d) prior healthcare experience served as explanatory or predictor variables in an exploratory regression analysis to identify relationships and/or influential predictors of early careerist healthcare administration competency. Results posit several areas for future research, including a methodological framework for test development and revision in order to establish parallel healthcare administration comprehensive exit exams.
