The Allied Medical Development Project, Forest Park Community College. Final Report.
Saint Louis Community Coll., MO.
The Allied Medical Development Project was conceived to determine the role of the St. Louis-St. Louis County Junior College District in the education of personnel for allied medical careers in the St. Louis area. The underlying assumption was that the development of needed programs on a sound basis in the St. Louis area would result in general concepts valuable to community colleges in other urban areas seeking to develop courses of study in the health field. During the investigative year, information was collected from representatives of health service facilities through interviews, questionnaires, and reviews of pertinent literature. During the second year, the data were analyzed, programs selected, and curriculums developed. During the third year, the major emphasis was upon implementation of the six selected programs, and a survey was carried out to determine what allied medical personnel were utilized by private practitioners of medicine, dentistry, and optometry. Other sections of the document deal with core curriculum, liaison with local and national organizations, student evaluation of programs, clinic affiliation, and specialized on-campus facilities. Appended are: (1) curriculums already developed and implemented, (2) tentative curriculums for future implementation, and (3) general academic requirements. (JK)
