GUIDANCE COUNSELOR INSTITUTE FOR HEALTH CAREERS (JULY 7-22, 1966).
MORGAN, PHILIP W.
THE INSTITUTE, SPONSORED BY A FEDERATED CHARITY REPRESENTING 78 NONPROFIT VOLUNTARY HOSPITALS IN NEW YORK CITY, WAS ATTENDED BY 48 HIGH SCHOOL AND EMPLOYMENT SERVICE COUNSELORS. THE NEED FOR SUCH INSTITUTES WAS DOCUMENTED BY A PRE-INSTITUTE QUESTIONNAIRE TO LICENSED GUIDANCE COUNSELORS. TO EVALUATE THE INSTITUTE, THE PROFESSIONAL EXAMINATION SERVICE DEVELOPED AND ADMINISTERED THREE PARALLEL EXAMS TO A CONTROL AND AN EXPERIMENTAL GROUP. A COMPLETE SUMMARY OF THE EVALUATIVE TESTING PROGRAM IS INCLUDED. THE PURPOSE OF THE INSTITUTE WAS TO UPDATE VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE PERSONNEL TO THE RANGE OF CAREER OPPORTUNITIES EXISTING IN THE HEALTH FIELD BY (1) PROVIDING CURRENT MATERIALS, (2) CREATING AN AWARENESS OF THE PROBLEMS IN RECRUITING ADEQUATELY TRAINED PERSONNEL, (3) PROVIDING KNOWLEDGE OF THE DIVERSE OPPORTUNITIES AND SATISFACTIONS OF HEALTH CAREERS, (4) DEVELOPING PROCEDURES FOR THE CONTINUING EDUCATION OF GUIDANCE PERSONNEL TO MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS OF THE HEALTH FIELD, AND (5) ASSISTING OTHERS IN PLANNING INSTITUTES. MAJOR SPEECHES PRESENTING MANY OF THE PROBLEMS CONFRONTING THE HEALTH SERVICE INDUSTRY AS WELL AS UP-TO-DATE FACTUAL INFORMATION ON MOST OF THE HEALTH PROFESSIONS, A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF ALL LITERATURE DISTRIBUTED, AND A LIST OF HEALTH CAREER FILMS ARE INCLUDED.
