The Secondary School Project for an Introduction to the Allied Health Professions.
Majchrzak, Shirley; And Others
In the 1968 Manpower Report, the serious shortage of manpower in the health occupations field was pointed out. The goal of this project is to develop a curriculum package which can be used in preparing high school students for employment or continuing education in the health care occupations. The 3-year program will enroll 100 secondary-level students each year in a program involving the cooperation of four hospital-school-community college complexes. Field trips, orientation to the hospital environment, and clinical training and job experience facilities will be provided by the hospitals. The curriculum includes four modules: (1) Introduction, (2) The individual and the environment, (3) Meeting the needs of the patient through the health care system, and (4) The hospital community. The evaluation includes monitoring the project's direction with the major focus on the student's performance. (GEB)
