Program for Educational Mobility for Health Manpower (The Basic Sciences), June 12-August 25, 1970. Preliminary Report.
Coordinating Council for Education in the Health Sciences for San Diego and Imperial Counties, CA.
Community college administrators and faculty in the areas of anatomy, physiology, chemistry, physics, and microbiology attended an 11-day workshop to redefine, modify, and develop science concepts for a core curriculum in the allied health field. To achieve workshop objectives, the committee heard presentations by consultants, visited clinical areas utilized in teaching, and collected task analyses of the entry-level tasks for medical assistant, dental assistant, radiologic technologist, inhalation therapist, licensed vocational nurse, registered nurse, and physical therapist assistant. On the basis of the task analysis, instructional units in anatomy and physiology, microbiology, physics and math, and chemistry were proposed for each occupational area. Before making final recommendations, the committee members decided to report the proposed curriculum to their departments and colleges and then plan for a later workshop. Consultants and organizations contacted, job descriptions, and a sample dental assisting program are appended. A second report is available as VT 012 909 in this issue. (SB)
