Summary

Committee members and office of education staff met with resource persons in health occupations area. Highlights of the specialists reports are--by 1970, 60 to 70 thousand medical technologists will be needed. Programs developed in technical and high schools and community colleges are all needed to reach this goal. Shortages of qualified teachers limit the output of registered physical therapists. Training of assistants is being emphasized. Many more persons need to be trained in prosthetics and orthotics. Guides for instruction and teaching materials are being developed slowly. The development of chains of nursing homes will stimulate the demand for both professional and subprofessional personnel. Additional schools, qualified teachers, and operating funds are needed for training dental assistants. Projects funded under 4(c) of the Vocational Education Act of 1963, including a recruitment film, were reported. The committee supported a motion that the U.S. Office of Education should support both practical nurse education and the 2-year associate degree nursing program. It was generally felt that approval for use of federal vocational education funds for health occupations training programs should be based on a showing of quality in accord with accreditation standards where available. Committee recommendations concerned preparing a position paper on career ladders and circulating a statement supporting practical nursing and associate degree nursing programs. (bs)
