This report discusses Phase 1 of a project to convert armed services dental and medical curriculum materials into separate curricula for dental and physician assistant for civilian education use. The first two sections focus on project tasks and acquisition of existing military materials in dental and physician assistant training. Samples of correspondence and military materials received are provided. Section C describes conversion/development of instructional materials and the competency-based format used. Sample modules for physician assistant and dental assistant are provided. Section D concerns field testing and revision of the modules. Section E overviews coordination and dissemination efforts. Exhibits include (1) Stages of Concern of an Instructional Innovation: A Self-Instructional Program Describing a Method of Assessing the Impact of the Conversion of Military Curriculum Materials for Civilian Education Use: (2) script for slide/sound presentation, The Conversion Process for Military Training Materials; and (3) Competency-Based Instructional Design for Dental Assistant Programs, a presentation made at an American Dental Assistants Association annual meeting. Section F offers recommendations for these potential problems: availability of military materials, material quality, overlap of existing projects, lack of coordination among government agencies, and lack of acceptance of competency-based format.
