A continuing education program in health systems management and administration, conducted for tribal and Indian Health Service (IHS) personnel, is described in this catalog. The first section states the goals of the program, which provides, on a national level, training to help tribes and tribal organizations administer health programs and to upgrade the administrative skills of IHS personnel. Section II describes enrollment procedures, lists permanent training staff and their qualifications, and provides a tentative course calendar for 1980. Section III lists the 24 training modules offered and provides the following information: brief summary of course content, prerequisites, maximum enrollment, module length, number of continuing education units earned, and level of difficulty. (Introductory, intermediate, and advanced modules are offered as well as modules covering a complete subject in one training session). Modules cover a variety of management and administrative topics including community and intra-hospital relations, health maintenance organizations, word processing, and health law. The final section discusses college and continuing education credit for the training modules and provides information for out-of-town trainees (i.e., map of downtown Tucson and directory of hotels, motels, and restaurants near the training facility).
