Physician Assistant. Curriculum Resource Document. Volume II: Curriculum Resource Guide. Final Report.
American Academy of Physicians' Assistants, Arlington, VA.
Designed as an educational resource for those involved in training physicians assistants, this curriculum guide is the second volume of a two-volume report of a project which had two major purposes: to further develop a role delineation for the assistant to the primary care physician and to provide an education resource for those involved in training physician assistants. The purposes of the guide are two-fold: (1) to demonstrate how the role delineation (presented in volume I) can be used to develop curricula and (2) to provide, through a sampling of possible objectives, learning opportunities, teaching strategies and methods for appraising student performance, and resource information on curriculum development activities. The first half of the guide contains sections on curriculum, model for curriculum development, defining curriculum, curriculum objectives, samples of behavioral objectives and teaching strategies, and learning opportunities and methods for appraising student performance. Appendixes (second half of the guide) contain similar materials not developed as part of the project but collected from other programs. Selected bibliographies on educational curriculum development activities and of textbooks used in physician assistant training programs are also included. (LAS)
