Unintended Consequences of Academic Inflation


This study will examine whether, and if so how, the composition of the student body including age, gender, and racial/ethnic mix has changed over time as educational requirements of a profession have increased. Focusing on a select number of health professions that have seen academic inflation, we will use a mixed methods approach to quantify the change as well as to understand the underlying reasons for the changes and attempts to mitigate any unintended consequences.
