Exploring Health Careers.
A presentation of individual health careers to enable the high school student to better understand the duties, opportunities, and prerequisite studies for each career and to evaluate himself in relation to all these factors is included in this manual for teachers. Units 1 and 2 address the establishment of teacher-student relationships and the evaluation of the student's present knowledge. Unit 3, the major portion of the guide, is a survey of 20 different health careers. It identifies the services rendered in the various health careers, lists the qualifications and opportunities for advancement in each, describes the functions of health-career personnel and their legal limitations to practice, and notes the basic personal qualifications desired for success in a chosen health career. Suggested activities for high school students and sources for visual aids and additional information are also included for each career. Unit 4 suggests the different areas to which field trips can be made. Unit 5 lists procedures that should be used with guest speakers. Unit 6 identifies the applicability of certain school subjects and extracurricular activities to specific health careers. Unit 7 points to the various job opportunities available in hospitals. A directory of film and filmstrip sources is also included. (HD)
