Additional Information Regarding Patient Care:
PA shadowing is encouraged, but not required, for the purpose of ensuring an individual understands the profession and is making an informed decision but it will not be accepted as part of the 1,000 hours of direct patient care experience. Direct patient care experience can be obtained through a paid or volunteer experience. Each case will be weighed on its own merits. We are interested in the quality of the experience. The experience should allow a candidate to receive enough exposure to function (e.g., taking vitals, evaluating/triaging patients, bed side care, drawing blood, obtaining EKGs, casting/splinting, wound care, placement of IVs, etc.) in a clinical capacity that will allow them to begin to understand medical terms and interact with a wide variety of patients and clinical situations. It should also give a supervisor an opportunity to assess skills for the purpose of generating a reference.
