Center for HPD Research

The Center for HPD Research provides a number of services to HPD faculty and administrators. The Center has compiled a database of research undertaken by HPD faculty the past three years. Information from this database can be used to assist other HPD researchers in locating research partners and to create reports for accrediting bodies and grant requests. Database reports can be requested through the office of the Executive Director for Assessment, Evaluation, and Faculty Development: or (954) 262-1524.


The Center for HPD Research assesses incoming HPD students using the following instruments: the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory, the Scale of Intellectual Development, the California Critical Thinking Skills Test, and the Learning Style Profile. These assessments can be used to help faculty understand their classes better and to help students understand themselves, their patients, and their learning styles better; A number of research studies using data from the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory have been published.
