The Effects of Programmed Culture Training Upon the Performance of Volunteer Medical Teams in Central America.
O'Brien, Gordon E.; And Others
This study compares the performance of volunteer medical teams who received a programmed culture assimilator test with teams who did not receive the assimilator. All team members, citizens of the United States, worked for three-week periods in Honduras and Guatemala and were rated on their success in conducting clinics and managing community development projects. The effect of culture training upon productivity, clinic training, and on teams working in villages is described. (Author/RL)
