Supervised clinical practice experiences in the form of clinical rotations provide critical learning experiences for the Eastern Michigan University physician assistant (PA) students. After completing the didactic year, students complete Introduction to the Clinical Year (3 weeks), nine clinical rotations (4 weeks each), and a clinical preceptorship (6 weeks). Clinical rotations are conducted in medical offices, hospitals and outpatient centers under the supervision and guidance of clinical preceptors who are PAs, physicians or other licensed healthcare providers.
For general information about clinical precepting, view the Preceptor Overview. Successful student clinical rotations require a collaborative effort of both students and preceptors. For guidance, best practices and details about clinical precepting EMU PA students, view the Preceptor Manual.
