Fellowship for Pediatricians in School Health.—The University of Texas Medical Branch (Galveston) announces the availability of a fellowship for pediatricians in School Health. A program drawing on University resources in pediatrics, psychiatry, psychology, preventive medicine, nursing and education, and community projects through public schools (nursery through high school) permits a wide choice in development of skills important to those seeking training for an altered role for the school health service.
The one-year or two-year period includes both training and research experiences in the learning process, normal cognitive development, and deviations in relation to the demands made by the educational environment; the climate of the educational system and teacher-pupil interaction; and delivery of school health services. The collaborative development and implementation of health education curricula (sex education, drug education, personality development) emphasize transmitting knowledge of physical and emotional growth and development of children to students, teachers, and parents.
