The Training of Genito Urinary Technicians; A Feasibility Study.
Washington State Dept. of Social and Health Services, Olympia. Health Manpower Project.
Questionnaires were mailed to all (101) practicing urologists in Washington to determine the feasibility of training genito urinary technicians and the desirability of offering specific courses as a Health Manpower Project. This mailing was preceeded by exploratory personal interviews and pretest mailback questionnaires. From the 52 respondent's replies, it was concluded that a specific genito urinary technician program would be impractical. Instead of such specialized training, a more generalized training program enabling graduates to assist in one of several medical specialities was suggested. The respondents (according to the cited percentages) felt the following courses should be included if the more specific program were instituted: anatomy (77%), physiology (67%), chemistry (33%), bacteriology (23%), other courses (37%). They also commented on the most important clinical, laboratory, and social skills related to urology. (The questionnaire is included.) (AG)
