Secondary Health Occupations and Local Medical Centers.
Thiele, Christyne S.
This project was conducted to develop a course of study in health occupations in grades 9 and 10 for a county-wide comprehensive health careers high school. The course was to include related skills development in health occupations, support materials for an academic course of study, and broad outlines of curriculum for grades 11 and 12. The High School for Health Careers began classes on August 27, 1984, with 204 ninth-grade students enrolled from 12 school districts in Bexar County, Texas. The competency-based curriculum for the school was based on recommendations of the curriculum subcommittee and the mandates of Texas law. After development, each topic was reviewed by subcommittee members and by consultants. Materials and equipment lists were developed to support the curriculum. Articulation processes were begun with San Antonio College, St. Phillips College, the Baptist Hospital System, and the University of Texas Health Science Center. (Curriculum outlines, a bibliography and audiovisual listing for grades 9 and 10, and an equipment and supplies list are included in this report.) (KC)
