PURPOSE: The purpose of this pilot study was 2-fold. The first was to investigate the conceptual relationship between previously validated methodologies. The second was to establish a linkage between medical education research and current neurocognitive science that accounts for knowledge organization during the clinical reasoning process. METHODS: Transcripts of Think Aloud interviews conducted after an objective structured clinical examination (n = 12) were coded and analyzed into 3 clinical reasoning competencies (semantic, diagnostic, and knowledge network organization)...

PURPOSE: Guided clinical experience is a critical component of a physician assistant (PA) student's education. However, clinical precepting is strongly perceived to have deleterious effects on productivity. In this study, we sought to test a method for evaluating the effect that PA students have on clinical productivity. METHODS: We recruited 14 family medicine preceptors and second-year PA students from 2 programs, the University of Washington (UW) and the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio (UT)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine USAF physician assistants' (PAs') concerns regarding postgraduate education and training. METHODS: This was a single-mode, observational, cross-sectional study using an anonymous-structured survey involving a population of 420 active duty USAF PAs. Potential participants were contacted by email and asked to take a one-time survey via a secure survey site link. RESULTS: One hundred ten USAF PAs participated in the survey seeking their opinions on factors affecting applying for military postgraduate specialty training...

Students enrolled in medical schools, nursing schools, and physician assistant (PA) programs are required to have instruction on patient privacy and protection of health-related information. The medical literature has several examples of breaches of patient privacy by clinicians, which likely represents only a fraction of the violations that occur. Patient privacy and the protection of health-related information constitute both an ethical issue and a legal issue and are associated with significant consequences...

PURPOSE: We performed a needs assessment to understand how existing physician assistant (PA) program curricula and clinical training affect students' ultrasound knowledge, skills, and competence and prepare students for performing ultrasound techniques in clinical practice. METHODS: Students graduating from a PA program completed a 23-item questionnaire examining their ultrasound training experiences, their self-assessment of competency, and their demographics. Students also completed a 15-item ultrasound knowledge assessment...

Désirée A Lie, Christopher P Forest, Regina Richter-Lagha
PURPOSE: Whether physician assistant (PA) students' self-assessment or standardized patient (SP) evaluations of students' medical Spanish proficiency accurately reflect their language proficiency is unclear. This study compares PA student and SP ratings with an expert faculty member's rating to determine whether student or SP ratings can be used to evaluate language proficiency. METHODS: Fifty-eight students participated in a single-station Spanish Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) at the midpoint of a medical Spanish curriculum...

PURPOSE: Physician assistant (PA) programs have heterogeneous admissions processes, but limited information is available as to which preadmission variables are associated with the greatest PA program success. We assessed the associations between preadmission criteria and PA program outcomes while accounting for numerous potential confounders and potential cohort effects. METHODS: In a sample of 147 students from a single New England PA program, we used random intercept multiple regression models to examine the associations between 2 PA program outcomes-Physician Assistant National Certifying Examination (PANCE) scores and PA program grade point averages (GPAs)-and multiple predictors of interest, including undergraduate GPA; hours of paid, hands-on patient care experience; and undergraduate institution rank...

Education in the health professions occurs at the graduate level, increasing the barriers to underrepresented and first-generation students. Some programs attempt to alleviate these barriers by streamlining passage from the undergraduate campus to the medical campus within a university or by accelerating entry to the professions by bypassing the bachelor's degree. These solutions each have their own limitations for students, including added pressure to maintain grades and a limited ability to explore multiple professions...

PURPOSE: This study explored the impact of early, repetitive, and required participation in a homeless shelter-based, student-run free clinic (SRC) on career choice in primary care, underserved medicine, and future volunteerism in physician assistants (PAs). The investigators hypothesized that students required to participate in the SRC would be more likely to select a career in primary care, be providers to underserved populations, and to volunteer. METHODS: A 30-question online survey, which included open- and closed-ended questions, was administered to alumni of the DeSales University PA program from January 2015 to April 2015...

PURPOSE: The growth of physician assistant (PA) programs nationally has stretched the available capacity of experienced PA program directors. To address this need, a professional developmental program was designed to provide new program directors with the knowledge, skills, and resources necessary to succeed in the role. This study sought to characterize the impact of program attendance over time. Data were collected from individuals representing 5 cohorts that participated in the annual Physician Assistant Education Association New Program Directors Retreat between 2011 and 2015...

PURPOSE: The selection of applicants for the Master of Physician Assistant Studies program in the Netherlands is nationally regulated. The minimum criteria are 2 years of experience in health care and a bachelor's degree in nursing or allied health care. However, when students lack the requisite degree, entering a physician assistant (PA) program is possible through an additional assessment process that includes a test of cognitive ability and personality traits. Since 2004, a national registry has tracked all PA students into their employment setting...

The PAEA End of Rotation™ exams were developed to assess medical knowledge of the 7 core supervised clinical practice experiences, including Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Pediatrics, Women's Health, and Psychiatry and Behavioral Health. The examinations were created by experienced PA educators and national exam experts with continual review and content updates. This paper summarizes changes since the inception of the exam program, including test construction and development, reliability, validity, and scale scoring...

PURPOSE: Educators influence learning context through, among other things, triadic reciprocal causation-a behavioral model used in social cognitive theory. Eliciting responses from learners during instruction may contribute to learning by engaging their metacognition. In this study, metacognition was examined based on learners' experience with 2 different polling methods: student response systems (SRS), commonly known as "clickers," and a low-technology response system (LTRS), where students raise labeled signs, each with a different response...

PURPOSE: This study investigated the physician assistant (PA) student evaluation of skin and the use of moulage in an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE). METHODS: Clinical-year PA students participated in an OSCE, taking a history, completing a physical examination, and writing a focused clinical note. The standardized patient's history simulated a primary diagnosis of right-sided carpal tunnel syndrome and an incidental skin lesion consistent with melanoma, only if the student made an inquiry in this replication study...
