AMA and Allied Health Manpower.
Kuhli, Ralph C.
The history of allied health occupations is one of increasing service to patients, especially by providing specialized services in selected parts of patient care with or under the direction and supervision of physicians. The AMA and 28 collaborating organizations accredit educational programs for 24 allied medical occupations, and are ready to do more to help Wisconsin improve its allied health educational programs. Wisconsin needs more efficient and more productive allied health educational programs for physician support personnel so that more people will get more and better health and medical services. A master plan is needed for allied health education to interdigitate the many kinds of institutions which provide allied health educational programs. Vocational education (Career education) can be a respectable and respected component of the total education available to students, and appropriate academic credit should be granted. (A list of AMA-accredited medical education programs at 53 institutions in Wisconsin is attached.) (Author)
