A project was conducted to examine the health occupations education program in New York State. Through a series of committee meetings, members of the health professions and educators from high schools, colleges, technical institutes, and regional agencies discussed a number of issues that should be considered as the health occupations curriculum of the various institutions is periodically updated. Main issues addressed by the curriculum committee include the following: health occupations credentialing and licensure; technical competencies for health care workers of the future; new product development as it affects user training; support services and health occupations education; the future of the clinical laboratory; the use of computers in instruction; and competency based vocational education. (Reports by various committee members, as well as reaction from the field and summaries of committee discussion are contained in this report.) (KC)
