Abstract

There is a growing emphasis on the behavioral and psychological aspects of health and illness in pediatric practice. If physicians are to be effective deliverers of health services, they must be knowledgeable in these areas. Training programs, therefore, must expose future primary care providers to behavioral and developmental issues. Evaluating reactions of participants in a school health elective to program content and the effects of such a program on current professional activities is one way to assess the success of programmatic goals and educational techniques used.
