PURPOSE: To assess student perceptions of the use of the "Muddiest Point" as a type of formative classroom assessment technique (CAT) in a clinical skills laboratory course. METHODS: Physician assistant (PA) students enrolled in a private university were invited to complete a perception survey regarding the use of the Muddiest Point at the conclusion of the course. RESULTS: Survey results showed positive overall student perceptions of the Muddiest Point and desire for broader use of this CAT in other courses...

Frances M Angerer-Fuenzalida
PURPOSE: As key players in a changing US health care system, physician assistants (PAs) must be prepared to act with a clear understanding of health policy as reform changes are enacted. The purpose of this study was to assess the perceptions of graduating PA students about the importance of health policy, reform, and public health and their perception of their preparedness in these areas. The research question was: Do PA students identify these topic areas as important, and, for each topic area, do they feel adequately prepared with sufficient knowledge for clinical practice? METHODS: Participants in the study included 352 PA students from 14 PA programs randomly selected from 4 geographic regions of the continental United States...

Lindsay Gietzen, Christopher Roman, Theresa Hegmann
PURPOSE: This study sought to evaluate the reliability of the PAEA End of Rotation™ exam scores used as a combined scale. The study also investigated how closely the individual exam scores and the combined scale correlate with PANCE performance to validate their use as tools for assessing PA students during their clinical training. METHODS: Deidentified PAEA End of Rotation examination and PANCE scores were used to calculate Pearson correlations, Cronbach's alpha, and value of Cronbach's alpha if individual exams were removed from the analysis...

Michelle DiBaise, Lisa Tshuma, Darin Ryujin, Susan LeLacheur
PURPOSE: A 2014 meta-analysis found that by graduation, 16.6% of medical students had reported abuse, harassment, or discrimination and that this hostile environment caused an increase in depression and anxiety. The purpose of this research study was to increase the understanding of discrimination and psychological/physical abuse in physician assistant (PA) education programs and the potential impact on student attrition. METHODS: Information was collected using an online, anonymous survey that asked about witnessed or experienced discrimination and psychological or physical abuse during the didactic and clinical years of training in PA programs in the United States...

M Jane McDaniel, Gregory B Russell, Sonia J Crandall
PURPOSE: The purpose of the study was to compare virtual microscopy with light microscopy to determine differences in learning outcomes and learner attitudes in teaching clinical microscopy to physician assistant (PA) students. METHODS: A prospective, randomized, crossover design study was conducted with a convenience sample of 67 first-year PA students randomized to 2 groups. One group used light microscopes to find microscopic structures, whereas the other group used instructor-directed video streaming of microscopic elements...

PURPOSE: Preceptors value communication with physician assistant (PA) educational programs. This study describes preceptors' perspectives about one PA program's established and new communication strategies to promote preceptor development and retention. METHODS: An electronic survey of preceptors was conducted in December 2014. Quantitative and qualitative data were analyzed using descriptive statistics. RESULTS: Eighty-eight of 209 preceptors completed the survey (42% response rate)...

Anthony E Brenneman, Constance Goldgar, Karen J Hills, Jennifer H Snyder, Stephane P VanderMeulen, Steven Lane
Physician assistant (PA) admissions processes have typically given more weight to cognitive attributes than to noncognitive ones, both because a high level of cognitive ability is needed for a career in medicine and because cognitive factors are easier to measure. However, there is a growing consensus across the health professions that noncognitive attributes such as emotional intelligence, empathy, and professionalism are important for success in clinical practice and optimal care of patients. There is also some evidence that a move toward more holistic admissions practices, including evaluation of noncognitive attributes, can have a positive effect on diversity...

PURPOSE: To assess the effectiveness of lectures for continuing medical education (CME) in dermatology in a global health setting and to determine provider and patient demographics of physician assistants (PAs) practicing in rural Ghana. METHODS: Physician assistants from Ghana who attended dermatology lectures at the International Seminar for Physician Assistants in 2011 or 2014 were included in this study. Surveys were administered to participants to determine dermatology resource availability, commonly encountered skin diseases, and management practices...

Venetia L Orcutt, Kassidy James, Carolyn Bradley-Guidry, P Eugene Jones
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine the concordance of US physician assistant (PA) program mission statements with those of US public- and private-sponsored medical schools. With the exception of a broader medical school focus on research, the authors hypothesized that little difference in mission statement congruence would be found in a comparison of medical schools and PA programs. METHODS: Mission statements of 209 of the 210 accredited US PA programs as of May 2016 were obtained and analyzed...

Dawn M White, Phillip Stephens
PURPOSE: Evidence-based practice (EBP) involves using the best evidence available to guide patient care. The use of EBP improves patient outcomes and the quality of care delivered. Studies have investigated how EBP is taught in other health professions but not in physician assistant (PA) programs. The purpose of this study was to explore how PA programs teach this subject matter. METHODS: After permission was obtained, a survey was adapted from a similar study completed in medical schools...

PURPOSE: The male-female wage gap is present and persistent in the health care sector, even among physician assistants (PAs). Explanations for the persistent gender earnings gap include differential salary expectations of men and women based, in part, on women's lower pay entitlement. The purpose of this study was to examine differences in salary expectations between male and female matriculating PA students nationwide, adjusting for other factors expected to affect salaries and pay expectations of both male and female matriculants...

PURPOSE: Attitudes regarding health-related deservingness of care for vulnerable patient populations can impact the quality of services provided. This study was aimed at identifying the influences that shape these attitudes among physician assistant (PA) students. METHODS: The study focused on PA students' perspectives toward care for a particularly vulnerable population, undocumented Mexican immigrants. An in-person survey was administered to first- and second-year PA students (n = 75)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine which factors had the greatest influence on physician assistant (PA) interviewees' decision to choose a PA program to attend. The information in this article may assist PA programs in making their program more attractive to potential applicants and also may help applicants identify programs that will best fit their needs. METHODS: Applicants who interviewed with a PA program were asked to rate 33 different influential factors when choosing a program to attend...
