The UCLA Secondary Schools Pilot and Demonstration Project for an Introduction to Allied Health Careers, 1970-1973; A Summary Evaluative Report.
The project evaluated in this report is seen to be generalizable to other high schools. The program provides an unusual opportunity for high school students to have a variety of experiences in a wide range of health occupations. The evidence indicates that an allied health curriculum in the secondary schools can produce commendable educational results. The project is described and then evaluated in terms of student participation, interest, and progress, general quality and effectiveness of the program, and contributions of the project. Twenty-eight specific findings, eight conclusions, and six recommendations are set forth, all indicating enthusiastic positive evaluation of the project and its further applications as a model. Problems in dropout prevention, health manpower shortages, and lack of educational relevance can be met by such a project. Appendixes give an example of a training institute, an example of a task list, evaluation forms used by students and hospital supervisors, and a list of participating facilities and personnel. (MS)
