Abstract

The purpose of the study was to construct a professional profile of medical technology and physical therapy baccalaureate chairs to compare male and female respondents in the areas of (1) biographic background, (2) career aspiration, (3) influence in decision making, (4) job-related stress, (5) goals important to role as chair, (6) skills important to role as chair, and (7) perception of ideal power. The response rate to a 1978 national survey was 72%. Statistical analysis on the 25 physical therapy females, 23 physical therapy males, and 20 medical technology female respondents revealed they were comparable in terms of the above variables. The three groups shared a common biographic profile except in the areas of marital status and clinical experience. These chairs exhibited low scholarly productivity and little interest in careers in academic administration or the clinical setting. Rather, they indicated sustained interest in departmental chair status or a return to fulltime faculty status. There was also perceived high participation in decision making, low to moderate job-related stress, and high concern for personal and faculty development. They agreed that selected administrative skills were necessary to their role as chairs. Finally, they reported that a considerable amount of power was necessary to their role as chairs in their institutions. Implications for chair development and recommendations for future research are discussed.
