McKay, Bruce; And Others
This health careers guidance manual was developed to provide high school counselors, teachers, and students with information regarding health career opportunities and available training programs in Wisconsin. The content is in two volumes, with the first comprising two-thirds of the manual. Volume 1 begins with one-page job briefs on fifty-four jobs in sixteen health career areas. Each brief includes short descriptions of the work, employment opportunities and settings, educational requirements, and where to write for further information. The remaining portion of this first volume is devoted to health career program outlines, ranging from one to seventeen pages in length, for these fifty-four health career jobs; each outline includes some or all of the following: course information, recommended high school courses, course outline (includes course titles and credits for each year of the program) and brief course descriptions for each course in the program. Volume 2 begins with two appendixes. The first describes, in alphabetical order, the recommended courses in Wisconsin high schools, while the second contains specific competencies for some of the basic curriculum courses in health career programs at a technical college. A listing of college, university, and vocational technical school programs, as well as hospital education and training programs in Wisconsin, concludes this second volume. (EM)
