Oregon State Board of Education, Salem. Div. of Community Colleges and Career Education.
The document consists of a course outline for a one semester health occupations career exploration course for grades 7-10 and a description of an exploratory course module. The course outline presents proposed content with corresponding activity suggestions in three sections designed to (1) define health and health care, (2) identify jobs and job opportunities in the health service industry, and (3) provide for student self-assessment in relation to job requirements for the various occupations. Appendixes for this part include: an eight-page list of references and audiovisual aids and a list of health occupations education and employment opportunities grouped according to level of education required. The module description (based on the outline) is a more detailed presentation of the exploratory course. For each of the module's three parts (Overview of Health Occupations, Health Occupations Opportunities, and Requirements for Health Professions) an introduction, goal-directed activities, and suggested implementation activities are provided. A membership list of the Oregon Advisory Council for Vocational Education is included. Appended are a 15-item reference list and sample job titles in health occupations. (MS)
