Survey reveals medical treatment satisfactory
By MARK SCHOEN
DTH Staff Writer
., A total of 86 percent of the UNC students surveyed by
the Division of Student Affairs were satisfied with 'then
medical treatment they received at the Student-Health.-Service
during the 1980-1981 school year, according to a
report presented to the UNC Board of Trustees cjuring.its
meeting in Kill Devil Hills Friday. fV. t,v ,
The survey, which was conducted in March,, was par
of a three-phase assessment of the programs and sejyipps '
offered by the health service, Donald A. Boulton, vice
chancellor for student affairs, said Sunday.
During the survey, 1,854 students and 623 .parents'
returned the questionnaires, which covered such4 aspects
of the service as utilization and appraisal, choice of
medical care, funding and extent of service and health
insurance. " , ;; (i
The results of the survey are expected to play a large
part in the evaluation and planning for the health ser
vice, Boulion said.
, ''It gives us as much a reading of the diversity of our
students as we could get," he said. "Our sample went
through each student group and is one we can make
decisions from." - .' '' '"
The results of the first stage of the project, a report
written by a consultant from the American College
Health Association, also was presented to the board.
The consultant, who visited the UNC:Chapel Hill cam
pus in April, studied such aspects as the service's funding
system and fiscal management.
The consultant, Dr. Paul Rupprecht of the University
of Minnesota, said that his observations indicated that
"the great majority of the students' health needs are be
ing met." He added, however, that the service's staff
should "become more involved in the campus communi
ty" and that efforts should be made to improve business
Phase three of the project, in which a consultant will
evaluate the health services programs, is scheduled to
start this fall. No further details of this evaluation were
A total of 70 percent of the students and 64 percent of
the parents that responded to the survey said they were
satisfied with UNC's practice of charging a high health
fee but making a comprehensive care program available.
According to the report, UNC charges one of the highest
.college health fees in the country.
The survey also found that 93 percent of the students
questioned had used the service during the 1980-1981
academic year. Of those, 98 percent said they were satis
fied with the facilities and 92 percent were happy, with
the attitude of the staff. Two-thirds of the students re
sponding were satisfied with the waiting time for treat
ment. . .
The report recommended that studies be made con
cerning greater publicity for the service. A total of 35
percent of the students said they were unaware that they
could receive treatment for a particular problem at SHS.
In the section of the report concerning specialty clin
ics, 84 percent of the students surveyed said they were
satisfied for the treatment they received. A majority of
the parents and students said that it was either "very im
portant, or moderately important" that the health ser
vices continue to offer such treatment as diagnostic tests,
emergency dental care, in-patient care, pharmacy services
and 24-hour emergency care.
A number of questions were recommended for further
study. Included were the possibility of reducing bed
space in the 37-bed in-patient unit, decreasing waiting
time, staggering physicians' lunch hours' so that treat
ment would be available between noon and 2 p.m.
Boulton said he was pleased with the 76.5 percent
return rate from the students and 62.7 percent response
rate from the parentsi

$364. Non-resident is $2,260, up from
$2,074. The fees for this year are $257.50.
The tuition increases are the result of a
legislative mandate for the 16-campus
UNC system to raise its tuition revenues
by 13 percent, UNC Vice Chancellor for
Business and Finance John L. Temple
Temple said the increases at UNC-CH
were in line with increases at the other
schools in the system. However, tuition
does vary throughout the system based on
enrollment and fields of study offered.
Tuition at UNC-Wilmington and UNC
Asheville will be lowered to make their
tuition equal to that at schools which do
not have graduate programs.
Eleanor Morris, director of the Finan
cial Aid Office, said that her office origi
nally estimated the increases low.
The estimate was $11 low for in-state
