The purpose of this clinical rotation is to provide the physician assistant student with practical exposure to patients in the inpatient setting and become proficient in the diagnosis, treatment and management of medical problems in the adult population. It is also designed to augment, strengthen and refine the student’s knowledge and skills learned in the didactic phase. This allows students to actively participate in the care of patients with common medical problems and function as an integral member of the health care team while under the direct supervision of attending physicians, housestaff physicians and physician assistants. The student will be responsible for performing complete history and physical examinations, daily rounds and monitoring, diagnostic procedures and the medical management (under supervision) of patients. This is a four-week clinical rotation with 160 contact hours. (3.0 credits)
