New Careers in the Indian Health Program.
Health Services and Mental Health Administration (DHEW), Bethesda, MD.
The Indian Health Service program has enabled large numbers of American Indians to play a significant role in the design and delivery of health services to their communities. The Indian Health Service provides training programs in various health-related areas. These programs have provided many Indians their first opportunity for employment, while for others the programs have been the first step towards a life-long health career. This document is intended as a reference to a variety of opportunities for new careers which exist within one of the many agencies serving Indian communities. It lists 14 training programs in such areas as community health, dental health, nursing, environmental health, supervisory food service training, technician (laboratory, radiologic, and medical records), and social work associate. Given with each program listing are some general information, the program objectives, a brief description of the curriculum, the prerequisites for entrance, the recruitment procedures, and the persons to contact for further information about the program. The addresses for the Indian Health Service Area Offices are also given. (NQ)
