Evaluation of the Basic Hospital Corps School.
Judisch, James M.; And Others
Two major areas were investigated: (1) the nature of the present curricula at the two Hospital Corps schools; and (2) the nature of the job requirements expected of newly graduated corpsmen at their first duty station. The development and construction of four instruments and the analysis and description of the present curriculum were accomplished. The curriculum analysis consisted of a topic-by-topic analysis of the individual corps school curricula and summarizing of major discrepancies. The survey was an integral part of the retention examination and was designed to determine where student and graduate corpsmen gained retention item information. The task scale was composed of a list of tasks comprising the job which the junior corpsman performed at his first duty station. The questionnaire asked for responses primarily of a demographic and attitudinal nature. (authors/ly)
