Workshop on Interdisciplinary Education--Kentucky January Prototype. Proceedings (University of Kentucky, April 15-17, 1975).
Kentucky Univ., Lexington. Coll. of Allied Health Professions.
Participants were acquainted with the conceptual and operational details of interdisciplinary education in allied health as carried out in the Kentucky January Prototype. The program was developed in terms of the Health Team Model for the past four years, and has created a source of information on many facets of developing and programming interdisciplinary activities. Emphasis of the program was placed in two major generic areas: knowledge of the health-care environment and team experience. Representatives of 10 allied health units from across the country participated in the workshop. Attendee concerns relating to implementing a Kentucky January Prototype on their own campus centered on available money, scheduling problems, and in some instances ideology problems. Each participant was interested in working towards the implementation of such an effort on their own campus in spite of obstacles. Specific sections of the workshop report are devoted to program content, faculty development, student development, location coordinator development, evaluation methodology, bibliography of materials, and interdisciplinary references.
