The purpose of this clinical rotation is to provide the physician assistant student with practical exposure to patients in the primary care setting. It is designed to augment, strengthen and refine the student’s knowledge and skills learned in the didactic phase by enabling them to recognize and manage acute and chronic medical conditions prevalent in primary care. This allows students to actively participate in the care of patients with urgent and common conditions, 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 comprehensive and directed histories and physical examinations, diagnostic procedures, and the medical and surgical management (under supervision) of patients. This is a four-week clinical rotation with 160 contact hours. (3.0 credits)
