Continuing Medical Education for National Health Service Corps Personnel. A Manual for Regional Clinical Coordinators.
Brown, Hamilton B.
This manual provides the regional clinical coordinator with ideas of what a clinical support system for the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) providers should include and ideas on how to create effective regional systems. Following an introductory section, the first of three additional sections defines the purpose of clinical support systems as being twofold: first, to support the physician as he adjusts to his new isolated role in the practice of medicine, and second, to fill the gaps in his training. The second section provides a brief discussion of the scope of clinical support service. Section 3 describes four roles of regional clinical coordinators: (1) to understnad the needs of and maintain contact with NHSC practitioners, (2) to identify appropriate resources within each state in their region, (3) to develop specific projects with each instituion, and (4) to evaluate the effectiveness of the program. A personal continuing medical education assessment form is appended. (LRA)
