Podiatric Assisting: A Curriculum Planning and Resource Guide.
Heath, Walter D.; Spetz, Sally H.
This curriculum resource guide, one of seven developed by the State of Illinois to present information on new and emerging curricula existing in the nation, can be used as a basis for local educators to determine the resources needed to offer podiatric assistant curricula and to initiate curriculum development at the local level. Chapters 1 and 2 contain an introduction and procedures for using the guide. Chapter 3 describes the job duties and typical employers of podiatric assistants. In chapter 4 alternative curriculum approaches are presented--an associate degree program, and certificate program. Chapter 5 discusses these resources required to implement the program: curriculum advisory committee, facilities and equipment, and instructor qualifications. The final chapter (chapter 6) contains five abstracts of curriculum and instructional materials; information provided includes title, author(s), availability, and price. Appendixes include lists of schools having a past or current interest in podiatric assistant programs and related agencies/organizations, tasks, American Podiatry Association accreditation information, and bibliographies of podiatry materials. (A report on the project that identified the seven new and emerging occupations is available as CE 025 423. See Note for other curriculum resource guides in ERIC.) (YLB)
