PAM 559 Core Medicine Elective Clinical Rotation (5 SH)

Prerequisite: Completion of all PA didactic courses

This clinical experience is designed to acquaint the student with the role of the physical assistant in practice. Students train under the supervision of a physician or midlevel provider in an office and/or hospital setting. Through this clinical rotation experience, the student will gain an in-depth exposure to a wide-spectrum of acute and/or chronic patient conditions. The experience can occur in a medical area that is already a required rotation or in a non-surgical specialty of the student’s choosing, with approval from the Clinical Coordinator.
