Program for Educational Mobility For Health Manpower (The Basic Sciences), December 28-December 31, 1970. Second Report.
Coordinating Council for Education in the Health Sciences for San Diego and Imperial Counties, CA.
To offer an integrated science curriculum that will provide sufficient depth, breadth, and lattice mobility as well as meet basic science needs upon which to build performance success for allied health professionals and technicians, several areas of concern, including basic philosophy, administrative support, faculty involvement, process and product, research input, and evaluation, need to be considered. In any effort to change the curriculum, the employing agency has to redesign certain task descriptions and job slots for the entry health worker and also must provide for worker upward mobility. Administrative support from the medical society and its specialty boards as well as from educational administrators is also necessary. Moreover, without active faculty participation, the curriculum change is doomed. Research is necessary to evaluate the modules developed for chemistry, physics, physiology, health education, and biomedical technology, as well as to share results with others. Additional evaluative data in the form of longitudinal followup studies should be instituted. Several sample modules are appended. A related document is available as VT 012 185 in this issue. (SB)
