Final Report: Radiation Health Technology Curriculum.
Marshall, Dwight A.; Hunt, Hiram M.
This report describes all aspects of a radiation health technology program at a lower-division college level. Such a program must include certain basic courses, plus supplementary ones to meet the needs of local employers. To implement and sustain a curriculum, the college must (1) determine the need for it, (2) establish its objectives, (3) develop course sequence and content, (4) decide on the necessary facilities and equipment, (5) draw up a budget, (6) obtain financial support, (7) hire instructors, and (8) recruit students. The instructors should be chosen for teaching ability as well as technical experience, with additional personnel hired for special courses as needed. Employers' evaluation of the program should be continual. They should be asked to advise while the curriculum is being prepared, encouraged to visit laboratories and classrooms during instruction periods, and asked for their opinions of the graduates they hire. This evaluation will expose both the strengths and weaknesses of the program. The report also contains (1) course outlines, both technical and general, for the proposed 2-year curriculum, (2) budget preparation, (3) estimates of laboratory space and equipment requirements, (4) possible student recruitment procedures, (5) recommended qualifications for the academic and technical staff, and (6) a questionnaire for soliciting employer evaluation.
