dc.description.abstract This study was carried out to ascertain the relationships between wellness role modeling and professional training in Health Science. The research subjects participating in this study were assigned to four groups, (1) Health Science majors nearing the end of professional training (N=24), (2) Health Science majors beginning their professional training (N=26), (3) non-Health Science majors nearing the end of professional training (N=18), and (4) non-Health Science majors beginning their professional training (N=21). Wellness levels were measured utilizing the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Wellness Inventory. The central null hypothesis tested in this investigation was: (A) There are no significant differences between student groups concerning wellness levels as measured by the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Wellness Inventory.It was found, through a primary analysis of the data, that while Health Science majors have higher mean scores on the wellness inventory than their non-Health Science major controls, these Health Science majors are not statistically different from the controls. A two-way analysis of variance failed to reject the central null hypothesis at the .05 level of significance. A secondary analysis of the data was conducted after inclusion of a fifth group, Health Science faculty.
