FACILITIES FOR EDUCATION IN VA HOSPITALS. FINAL REPORT.
GREEN, ALAN C.; AND OTHERS
THIS STUDY WAS AUTHORIZED BY THE VA DEPARTMENT OF MEDICINE AND SURGERY FOR THE PURPOSE OF IDENTIFYING AND DETERMINING THE FACILITIES NEEDED TO PROPERLY HOUSE AND SUPPORT EDUCATION ACTIVITIES IN EXISTING AND FUTURE VA HOSPITALS AND TO PRODUCE ARCHITECTURAL GUIDANCE IN THE DESIGN OF THE FACILITIES. CURRENT PRACTICES AND SIGNIFICANT TRENDS IN MEDICAL EDUCATION WERE OBSERVED AT THIRTY-FIVE INSTITUTIONS TO DETERMINE THE ROLE OF THESE HOSPITALS IN SUPPORTING EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, IDENTIFY ESSENTIAL EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES, AND RECOGNIZE THE SPECIFIC CHARACTER OF VA HOSPITAL FUNCTIONS AND THE NATURE OF ITS POPULATIONS. FROM GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS ON PLANNING AND PROGRAMMING TO MEET EDUCATIONAL NEEDS, ADEQUATE SPACE PROVISION, RECOGNITION OF CHANGING NEEDS AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS, DETAILED DESIGN STUDIES FOR SPECIFIC RECOMMENDED FACILITIES WERE DEVELOPED. EACH DESIGN STUDY EXPLAINS THE INTENDED FUNCTION OF THE FACILITY, AND INCLUDES A DETAILED FUNCTIONAL PROGRAM WITH ASSOCIATED GRAPHICS. TWO CASE STUDIES ARE PRESENTED TO ILLUSTRATE APPLICATION OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES IN PLANNING NEW VA HOSPITALS. THE GENERAL PLANNING PROCEDURES WERE CRITICALLY REVIEWED AND SUGGESTIONS OFFERED FOR POSSIBLE IMPROVEMENT. ALSO INCLUDED ARE SKETCHES FOR ALTERING FOUR EXISTING VA HOSPITALS TO INCORPORATE THE EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES RECOMMENDED. (BH)
