A Guide for Planning Facilities for Occupational Preparation Programs for Medical Secretaries. Research Series No. 33.
Macconnell, James D., And Others
The major purpose of this facility planning guide is to develop the necessary information for the writing of educational specifications to house medical secretary programs by (1) assisting planners in the formation of creative housing solutions for desired programs, (2) preventing important considerations from being overlooked in the planning process, and (3) encouraging logical and systematic planning. The guide includes four sections. Part I (Introduction) is a discussion of the major purpose, the underlying assumptions, recent instructional trends, and the guiding principles. Part II (The Instructional Program) gives the important information on medical secretary training objectives and the kinds of programs which will be organized to implement them. Part III (Distinctiv e Types of Instructional Areas to be Provided) describes in detail the actual spaces desired to house the program. Part IV is an annotated bibliography of reference sources which offer a more detailed treatment of the various phases of facility planning. A Guide to Systematic Planning for Vocational and Technical Schools (ED 026 537) is a related document. (CH)
