Medical Office Receptionist/Assistant. COM-LINK. Competency Based Vocational Curricula with Basic Skills and Academic Linkages.
Gorman, Dolores
This competency-based module uses the Ocean County (New Jersey) Vocational-Technical Schools curriculum-infused model for infusing basic skills instruction into vocational education. The model demonstrates the relationship of vocational skills to communication, mathematics, and science. The document begins with a philosophy statement; preface; a table that explains the number of hours required for academic credit in various programs and the number of those hours that are devoted to basic skills and vocational activities; matrices that show in which courses specific basic skills are taught; a list of objectives; and an explanation of student activities. The rest of the document consists of matrices that describe the relationship of vocational skills to basic skills within the medical office receptionist/assistant program. These pages are organized by instructional unit and the topics within each unit. The following categories accompany each topic and associated task(s): the theories; communication, math, and science skills covered; and the expected student outcomes. Among the 61 units are: safety; career opportunities; professional status, conduct, and ethics; telephone procedures; emergency patients; health insurance; workers' compensation; medical specialties; anatomy; systems of the human body; records management; business correspondence; equipment; financial management; instruments; vital signs; physical examination; medical tests; first aid; interpersonal skills; and job search skills.
