Reports of Committees of Senate (continued)
Committee on Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science Degree (See Appendix 'C')
Dean Riedel presented the report. As stated in the report, Senate at its meeting of
March 23, 1977, considered a proposal to offer a Bachelor of Medical Laboratory
Science Degree for students who had graduated from an approved Institute of
Technology. Concern was expressed regarding the academic standards of students
transferring from a technical program into a university program and some members
had felt that the proposal should be studied more carefully. Senate approved a motion
that the proposal be referred to a special group to be appointed by the Senate
Nominating Committee.
The concerns expressed about the program at that time were:-
1) that academically it was a very narrowly based program, building on a
technical school program, equating a year at a technical school with a year at
university, and not open to other university students;
2) that the academic background of the students, particularly in Chemistry, was
lacking.
The committee, subsequently established by Senate, had re-examined the proposal
in depth and agreed to recommend approval of the program with certain modifications.
The impetus for the proposed program came from the British Columbia Society of
Medical Technologists in a letter to President Kenny in 1975 expressing a wish on the
part of many members of the organization for the opportunity to work towards a
degree. A committee set up in the Faculty of Medicine studied the educational needs
of these technologists and recommended that a program leading to the degree of
B.M.L.Sc. be proposed. The academic objective of the program was to enable an
individual with a professional technological qualification to enter the academic
scientific community and add to his or her qualifications the necessary theoretical
background. It was expected that graduates would be employed in large hospitals to
develop and test new methodology and to teach medical technologists, employed as
research assistants, or employed in government testing laboratories and in industry.
The program was designed to produce a special type of biological scientist who would
work in a medically oriented laboratory.
The committee was satisfied as to the philosophic intent of the program; the
desirability that individuals be able to continue their education and not find themselves
in a dead end; and that the program was of significance in relation to a need in the
community. In the revised form in which the program was now being recommended to
Senate the committee was satisfied that the program maintained desirable academic
standards and offered opportunities for entrance directly through Science as well as
through the technological background route. 6885.
Wednesday,  October  12,   1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee on Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science Degree (continued)
The program (as outlined in Appendix 'C') is that which was before Senate earlier
with the following modifications:-
1) Chemistry 205 and Chemistry 230 (or equivalent in each case) have been
added as prerequisites.
2) A route into the program from Science has been proposed.
3) The chemistry courses, Chemistry 311 and 321, have been added to the
program of the Third Year.
4) The course, Pathology 301, has been reduced from a 4-unit course to a 2-unit
course. This is possible because the addition of Chemistry 205 and 230 as
prerequisites has resulted in chemistry material being deleted from this
course.
As far as the proposed route for students entering from Science was concerned it
would be necessary for the proposed new courses in Pathology required to prepare
students by this route to be presented in the regular manner through the appropriate
curriculum committees. It would also be necessary for discussions to take place
between the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Science with respect to the form
of the Second Year. It was therefore not possible for the committee to make a
definitive recommendation on the Science route into the program.
Dean Riedel      ) That    the    proposal    of   the   Faculty   of
Dr. Runeckles ) Medicine to offer a Bachelor  of  Medical
Laboratory Science degree be approved.
Carried
Committee to review the Postgraduate (Residency) Training Programs of the Faculty
of Medicine
Dr. MacDougall presented the report, which contained the following
recommendations:-
"  Recommendation I
That  the  Senate approve the Postgraduate (Residency) Training Programs
listed at the Senate meeting on AprilI 23, 1975.
At its meeting on April 23, 1975, the Senate received a report from the
Senate Curriculum Committee that the then current offerings should be listed in
the Calendar but that a Senate Committee be struck to review the entire aspect of
the Postgraduate (Residency) Training Programs.
The Committee has reviewed these programs. It was aware, in its
deliberations, that, except for the residency in Family Practice, all of the programs
had been approved by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons as well as the
Faculty of Medicine. Nevertheless, the Committee recognized its responsibility to
make an independent judgment. It is our view that the programs describe courses
properly offered by this University and that this committee agrees with Senate's
earlier decision to list the offerings and approve the programs. 6886.
Wednesday,  October   12,   1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee to review the Postgraduate (Residency) Training Programs of the Faculty
of Medicine
Recommendation I   (continued)
One major concern of the Committee was the broader implications of a
decision to approve the various postgraduate (residency) training programs. We
note that the University's involvement in these programs has been growing to the
stage where the postgraduate (residency) training programs absorb more faculty
time than the undergraduate program. We see no sign that this trend will be
arrested or reversed. Nor indeed would we wish it to be. We think it entirely
proper that the Faculty of Medicine should be involved in, and largely responsible
for, the academic quality of these programs.
Recommendation 2
That changes in the Postgraduate (Residency) Training Programs should be
reported to Senate for discussion and approval.
The Committee considered the possibility of increased co-operation between
the Faculty of Medicine and other Faculties in the various postgraduate residency
programs. Unfortunately, the physical separation of the teaching hospitals from
the University makes such co-operation generally impractical.
Because the postgraduate (residency) training programs involve the use of
facilities (the teaching hospitals) under independent control, we considered whether
it would be desirable to set up some mechanism to review periodically the practical
problems of offering residency programs of appropriate quality. In fact, the Royal
College of Physicians and Surgeons reviews such programs every five years.
Moreover, the Faculty of Medicine has established a Faculty Residency Committee
which is responsible for the various residency programs. It is our view that a
further reviewing agency would serve no useful purpose and that the responsibility
for maintaining appropriate standards in the various programs properly rests with
the Faculty of Medicine which will report to the Senate any problems it encounters.
Recommendation 3
That  students  enrolled  in  the  postgraduate  residency  programs should be
registered with the University and pay appropriate fees.
Technically, students in the postgraduate (residency) training programs are
already required to register with the University. When this sytem was first
introduced there were some uncertainties and delays but the registration system is
now working well. Obviously proper registration of the students in the program is
of critical importance as the University is assuming responsibility for the academic
quality of the training programs.
In two other provinces (Alberta and Quebec) students registered in the
residency programs pay significant fees which are, however, repaid by the
government. In other provinces the fees are nominal. At the University of B.C.,
for example, the fees are currently $20.00. In our view the formal recognition of
the postgraduate (residency) training programs carries with it a concomitant
obligation to insist on the payment of appropriate University fees. We recognize
that the fees will be a very small percentage of the total cost of the postgraduate 6887.
Wednesday,  October   12,   1977.
Reports of Committees of Senate
Committee to review the Postgraduate (Residency) Training Programs of the Faculty
of Medicine
Recommendation 3  (continued)
(residency) training programs and that the imposition of such fees will result in
negotiations between the government, the teaching hospitals and the residents
about the proper remuneration of residents. We would favour a system like that in
operation in Alberta and Quebec where the student pays significant fees which are
later refunded by the government.
We believe, however, that the imposition of reasonable university fees is
appropriate and that it may have a salutary effect in emphasizing to the residents
the role of the University in their continuing education.  "
Recommendation I
Dr. MacDougall ) That the Postgraduate (Residency) Training
Dr. Hill ) Programs listed at the Senate meeting on
April 23, 1975 be approved.
Carried
Recommendation 2
Dr. MacDougall ) That      changes      in      the      Postgraduate
Dr. Kraintz ) (Residency) Training Programs be reported
to Senate for discussion and approval.
Carried
Recommendation 3
Dr. MacDougall ) That students involved in the postgraduate
Dr. Kraintz        ) residency programs be registered with the
University and pay appropriate fees.
In reply to a query it was confirmed that this was a recommendation to the
Board of Governors since it was not within the jurisdiction of Senate to assess fees.
The motion was put and carried.
Report of the President's Committee on Interior Programs
Dr. Shearer, Chairman of the President's Committee on Interior Programs,
presented a verbal report on the University's proposal to offer degree programs in the
Interior.
Senate was informed that the committee had prepared two sets of proposals
following intensive campus-wide consultations. The first set of proposals was for the
University's involvement in Interior programs in 1977-78 and the second set of proposals
was for longer term plans. 6888.
Wednesday,  October   12,   1977.
Report of the President's Committee on Interior Programs (continued)
A substantial proportion of the proposals for 1977-78 which were put before the
Interior University Programs Board received funding. These were mainly proposals for
funding to guarantee the offering of certain Education courses that might otherwise not
be offered because of small enrolment; funding to improve the quality of the
correspondence courses and the extension of non-credit work in Commerce and a few
other professional faculties partly through the Centre for Continuing Education.
The Interior University Programs Board also agreed to provide subsidies for
approximately thirty credit courses in the Faculty of Education to be offered in the
interior of the province, and subsidies to a large number of professional development
courses in Education. They have agreed to provide funding to equalize the cost to
students of a number of Engineering professional development courses; funds to improve
communication between students and teachers involved in the independent study
correspondence courses; funds to take the Diploma Program in Education of Young
Children to the interior of the Province; funds to study the professional development
needs of Foresters; funds to permit the offering of a number of non-credit courses by
the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration, and recently the board
recommended to the Universities Council funds for the Faculty of Medicine to put on
public health forums via the Hermes satellite.
Referring to the longer term proposals Dr. Shearer stated that the committee had
put forward proposals built on certain very basic principles which it was felt reflected a
deep and sincere commitment on the part of the University to provide the highest
possible quality education to all residents of the province.
The committee took the view that the educational facilities to be developed in the
interior of the province should reflect the educational preferences, needs and
requirements of the interior residents as documented by the Winegard Commission and as
they have been revealed by enrolment patterns with regard to students from the interior.
The committee also took the view that it would not regard the interior of the
province essentially as an educational laboratory for carrying out educational
experiments. The University would provide to the residents of the interior of the
province U.B.C. degree programs of an established, proven and approved type, widely
recognized for their quality and content.
The committee recognized that programs offered in the interior would be more
costly per student than programs offered at U.B.C, partly because of low enrolment,
partly because of inherently higher costs for certain activities. 6889.
Wednesday,  October   12,   1977.
Report of the President's Committee on Interior Programs  (continued)
It was proposed that one or two university centres would be established, at
locations not yet specified, each offering upper year courses in Arts, professional year
work in Education, and some work in a few professional fields. Programs in Science were
not being proposed at this time because of financial constraints.
It was also noted that the committee was not proposing programs in a wide range of
professional faculties, again because of the financial constraint and certain other
technical difficulties. It was proposed that the university centres would be at community
colleges although, of course, administratively separate from the colleges. Each of these
centres would have its own resident faculty. The faculty would be selected by and
appointed to departments at this University but they would hold their appointment in
that University centre unless, as it was hoped would happen in some cases, they are
seconded from the departments at U.B.C. Library facilities would be established which
were adequate by U.B.C. standards to put on the courses in question.
It was proposed that the Faculty of Arts at these centres would have 6 to 8
departments with, after a period of time, three faculty members per department. At
each of the centres there would also be a small Faculty of Education which would be
involved with the professional year for graduates holding a Bachelor's degree, plus a
two—year Bachelor of Education elementary program. Initially there would be some
small involvement by the School of Social Work and the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration which it was hoped would develop into a substantial program.
Dr. Shearer explained that the proposals had been submitted to the Interior
University Programs Board, which is an adjunct of the Universities Council. The Board in
turn would make recommendations to the Universities Council for its consideration and
ultimately recommendation to the government. The Board had scheduled meetings in
October and November at which proposals from U.B.C, Simon Fraser University and the
University of Victoria would be discussed.
