Honors College Thesis
Healthcare on university campuses is not a new concept. There is little evidence surrounding the effectiveness and adaptability of services provided to students by providers or healthcare facilities located on campus. Literature describes individual concepts of healthcare resources provided on campus including convenience, holistic care, abilities to refer to off campus specialty clinics, and factors related directly to the patient’s beliefs and values. However, there is a considerable gap in tools used to measure opinions directly related to the services, quality, perception, initiatives, and overall satisfaction with the provisions provided by healthcare professionals located on university campuses. Of the 23 public institutions of higher education (PIHE) in the state of Mississippi, only three surveys were obtained for evaluation. This research reveals not only the lack of surveys being used by PIHE in the state of Mississippi, but also a lack of standardization in the surveys currently being utilized.
