This series covers positions that involve research or other professional and scientific work that is specifically health-
oriented in character, when the work is of such generalized or miscellaneous specialized nature that the positions
are not more appropriately classifiable in any of the existing series in this or any other Group. The work requires a
background of knowledge, skills and techniques gained from professional training in a health science or allied
scientific field, but has no paramount, rigid or continuing requirement for the knowledge, skills and techniques
characterizing any of the established series that reflect one or more of the academic disciplines or recognized
professions. Such work may cut across and require understanding of scientific methods and techniques common
to several recognized professional fields in the health, medical or allied sciences (e.g., work in the field of health
research administration requiring knowledge of research methodology common to a number of different scientific
