    Note: Semesters of Rotations are subject to overflow due to scheduling and length of rotations. Students may take three elective clinical rotations of 4 weeks each provided there are no academic or probationary restraints. During the clinical rotations, students are visited by a faculty member (either core or adjunct) in order to assess the clinical learning experience. These visits are designed to ensure each student receives an appropriate clinical learning experience. Additionally, the student is required to return to campus for end‐of‐rotation examinations and/or professional practice activities.

    Students are required to complete appropriate logging and evaluation forms as delineated in each syllabus, and written assignments as assigned. Students are also required to successfully pass a comprehensive written examination of the program’s design in order to successfully complete the program. Students may be required to successfully complete an Objective Standardized Clinical Experience (OSCE) or other practical examination as well prior to graduation. Additionally, near the end of the clinical phase, students will participate in an intensive board review course to better prepare for the Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination (PANCE) and clinical practice.
