New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Occupational and Career Curriculum Development.
The document presents a syllabus which would serve as a guideline for health occupations educators in establishing a course of study for training medical assistants which would meet New York State requirements and be acceptable for State credit. The syllabus is arranged in three columns: (1) minimum acceptable content of study which requires 80 percent of the course time in instruction, (2) instructional objectives based on student performance, and (3) teaching suggestions. The course of study is divided into six sections: general orientation (2 areas), the medical assistant (4 areas), body structure and function (15 areas), administrative duties (4 areas), clinical duties (5 areas), and technical duties (3 areas). A discussion on the relationship of clinical experience, a sample clinical experience agreement, procedures for obtaining certification, a resource list of instructional materials, and source directory of suppliers are appended.
