TELEVISION IN MEDICAL TEACHING AND RESEARCH.
RAMEY, JAMES W.
A STUDY WAS MADE ON THE USE OF TELEVISION IN MEDICAL TEACHING AND RESEARCH THROUGH A SURVEY OF 88 MEDICAL SCHOOLS, SITE VISITS TO 22 OF THE SCHOOLS, AND AN ANALYSIS OF RECENT JOURNAL ARTICLES CONCERNING TELEVISION'S USE IN MEDICINE. THE SURVEY CONSISTED OF A DETAILED QUESTIONNAIRE WHICH WAS MAILED TO USER INSTITUTIONS. A TOTAL OF 47 SCHOOLS REPORTED TV INSTALLATIONS, WHEREAS, 41 SCHOOLS REPORTED NO USE OF TV. THERE WAS A LACK OF UNIVERSALITY IN THE USE OF TELEVISION. IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT 13 SCHOOLS USE THE MEDIUM IN ONLY ONE DEPARTMENT, AND 36 USE IT IN 5 OR FEWER DEPARTMENTS (AN AVERAGE NUMBER OF 17 DEPARTMENTS PER TV USER SCHOOLS WAS DETERMINED). IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE IMPRESSION OF WIDESPREAD AND VARIED USE OF TELEVISION AS A REGULAR, INTEGRAL TEACHING DEVICE IN MEDICAL EDUCATION IS NOT SUPPORTED BY THE FACTS. MANY OF THE REPORTED USES WERE FOUND TO HAVE BEEN ONLY ISOLATED EXPERIMENTAL APPLICATIONS OF THE MEDIUM. IN ADDITION TO THE SURVEY RESULTS, ABSTRACTS ARE INCLUDED WHICH COVER THE MOST IMPORTANT JOURNAL ARTICLES ON MEDICAL APPLICATIONS OF TELEVISION SINCE 1947. (JC)
