Our History

Chronologic Development of the Health Care Administration Program at California State University, Long Beach


By Robert E. Tumelty, Professor Emeritus and Founding Director Health Care Administration Program

This document has been prepared for use by Dr. Connie J. Evashwick, Professor, and Director, Center for Health Care Innovation, in developing a presentation at the 25th Anniversary Program for the Health Care Administration, April 28, 2001. I suggest that it is reasonably correct, but is certainly subject to revision and interpretation. Substantial changes have come about since my retirement in 1992, and I suggest that persons with' first-hand knowledge, might wish to describe these changes. Note: When all this began CSULB was called California State College, Long Beach, and the schools referred to here eventually became colleges, some of which have undergone name changes. The references used here will generally use the name in use at the time of the noted event, or "eras" as given in the text.
