The seventh six-week supervised clinical practice experience (SCPE) focuses on the professional and clinical role of the physician assistant in one of eight clinical disciplines. 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 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.
