An Analysis of Department of Defense Medical Corpsmen Training Programs and Possible Contributions to Civilian Physician's Assistant Programs.
Cabral, William R.; Stewart, Wendell L.
The general Medical Corpsmen Training Programs of the Army, Navy, and Air Force are presented and analyzed. These programs are compared with the Civilian Physician's Assistant Programs at Duke University and the University of Washington Medex Program. The purpose was to determine whether additional academic credit could be granted for Military Medical Training Programs. The general conclusion was that any advanced standing granted to former Military Corpsmen should be based on pre-admission tests. (Author)
