Nicholas M Hudak, Betsy Melcher
PURPOSE: This study describes (1) preceptors' perceptions of interprofessional encounters that PA students had at clinical sites and (2) ways that the preceptors report evaluating the PA students' interprofessional practice skills. METHODS: This study disseminated a single electronic survey of clinical preceptors who were affiliated with an accredited PA program. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the results. RESULTS: Of 195 preceptors, 66 completed the survey...

David J Klocko
PURPOSE: This article describes a 3-year retrospective analysis of student clinical rotation evaluations using the Reporter-Interpreter-Manager-Educator (RIME) scoring format. The intent of the analysis was to assess scoring trends to determine whether students with high scores on the Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE) also achieved high RIME scores on clinical rotations. METHODS: The top and bottom quartiles of PANCE scores were identified for the University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center's physician assistant (PA) classes of 2010-2012 (n = 106)...

Self-directed learning (SDL) portfolios are underused in the educational process and should be considered by physician assistant (PA) programs. Clinicians such as PAs are responsible for self-identifying their learning needs, competencies, and ongoing educational requirements. This article introduces an outline for SDL in the PA profession, for direct use by learners and indirect use by educators. Without a plan, many professionals may lack the insight, motivation, and knowledge needed to improve their skill set and establish goals for individual lifelong learning...

Physician assistant (PA) educational programs were created in the 1960s to prepare a new type of health care practitioner. Physician assistant programs began as experiments in medical education, and later, they proved to be highly successful in preparing capable, flexible, and productive clinicians. The growth of PA educational programs in US medical education-stimulated by grants, public policy, and anticipated shortages of providers-has gone through 3 distinct phases. At present, such programs are in the midst of the third growth spurt that is expected to continue beyond 2020, as a large number of colleges and universities seek to sponsor PA programs and attain accreditation status...

Lixin Li, John Lopes, Joseph Yi Zhou, Biao Xu
PURPOSE: Medical simulation has recently been used in medical education, and evidence indicates that it is a valuable tool for teaching and evaluation. Very few studies have evaluated the integration of medical simulation in medical physiology education, particularly in PA programs. This study was designed to assess the value of integrating medical simulation into the PA physiology curriculum. METHODS: Seventy-five students from the PA program at Central Michigan University participated in this study...

PURPOSE: Changes in medical education have prevented students from conducting full cadaveric dissections in gross anatomy. The efficacy of alternative educational methods is being explored to augment traditional dissection. METHODS: Team-based learning was integrated into the 2014 gross anatomy laboratory for physician assistants (PA) and nurse anesthetists. Deidentified data from the 2013 and 2014 courses were used to assess with t-tests the effect of this addition on student academic performance...

LaDonna S Hale, Anthony DiLollo
Beyond medical knowledge and clinical skills, physician assistant curricula must include instruction in collaborative, interprofessional, patient-centered, evidence-based practice (EBP). Development and implementation of interprofessional education (IPE) are challenging. This article describes a replicable model for an interprofessional graduate-level course that incorporates both exposure and immersion, allowing students to develop and demonstrate the Interprofessional Education Collaborative's 38 core competencies for interprofessional, collaborative decision making and problem solving while also acquiring functional skills in EBP...

Joanne Rolls, David Keahey
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to assess the number of Health Resources and Services Administration Expansion of Physician Assistant Training (EPAT)-funded physician assistant (PA) programs planning to maintain class size at expanded levels after grant funds expire and to report proposed financing methods. The 5-year EPAT grant expired in 2015, and the effect of this funding on creating a durable expansion of PA training seats has not yet been investigated. METHODS: The study used an anonymous, 9-question, Web-based survey sent to the program directors at each of the PA programs that received EPAT funding...

PURPOSE: Professional training programs for physician assistants (PAs) have been rapidly expanding. The profession therefore needs to develop a sufficiently robust teaching workforce. METHODS: This study surveyed current PA students from all Physician Assistant Education Association member programs to ascertain their level of interest in and understanding of careers in PA education, including faculty and precepting roles. RESULTS: The study revealed that interest was greatest in precepting roles...

Genomic discoveries are increasingly being applied to the clinical care of patients. All physician assistants (PAs) need to acquire competency in genomics to provide the best possible care for patients within the scope of their practice. In this article, we present an updated version of PA genomic competencies and learning outcomes in a framework that is consistent with the current medical education guidelines and the collaborative nature of PAs in interprofessional health care teams.
