The six-week Behavioral and Mental Health supervised clinical practice experience (SCPE) focuses on the professional and clinical role of the physician assistant in Behavioral and Mental Health. By integrating evidence-based medicine with medical knowledge gained during the didactic phase, students refine their clinical, technical, clinical reasoning, and problem-solving skills within a supervised clinical setting. Students also advance their interpersonal and communication skills to foster effective patient care and interprofessional collaboration. The Behavioral and Mental Health SCPE enables students to meet the skill-based learning outcomes and professionalism expectations required to enter clinical PA practice successfully and provide equitable care to diverse patients.
