Medical Assistant Curriculum.
Intended to serve as a guide to school personnel responsible for curriculum development, the course outline is designed to prepare high school students for entry into the medical field as an assistant in a doctor's office. Contents are divided into three areas: medical secretary, medical technician, and doctor's assistant (patient management). Within each area, the specific skills to be learned are presented in units with detailed lesson plans. For each unit, the plan gives: length of time required, objectives, suggested instructional procedures, unit outline (material to be covered), discussion guide and demonstrations, references, and suggested teaching aids. Appended are the questionnaire used to determine skills required, lists of medical terminology, sample forms used in doctor's offices, and references. Although the guide was planned to train students in all three areas of the curriculum, individual schools may use only one or two areas, depending upon local needs and resources. (RG)
