Selected Listing of Federal and Non-Federal Programs Relating to Allied Health.
Health Services and Mental Health Administration (DHEW), Bethesda, MD.
In its February 1969 meeting, the National Advisory Council for Regional Medical Programs reaffirmed its position on recruitment and basic education--that Regional Medical Program funding is not to be used to replace existing sources of support and that other sources should be explored first. Therefore the Continuing Education and Training Branch of the Allied Health Section prepared this listing of resources for allied health education programs. Federal programs described include those of: (1) The Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, covering the National Institutes of Health, the Health Services and Mental Health Administration, Consumer Protection and Environmental Control, Social and Rehabilitation Service, and the Office of Education; (2) the Department of Labor; (3) the Department of Commerce; and (4) the Office of Economic Opportunity. The programs of 13 non-federal organizations are described, including information facilitating contact. Programs are indexed according to level of training and profession. Appended are listings of practitioner associations; regional offices of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, the Department of Labor, and the Office of Economic Opportunity; State agencies for vocational rehabilitation and State official responsible for supervision of health occupations education.
