Clinical Rotations During COVID-19

Recommended Posts

Ours were also recalled. ARC-PA and other organizations are working on a strategy. For now, students are doing case studies, etc.

The program I precept for is basically doing that same.  Do y’all have any ideas/ opinions on letting students participate in telemedicine encounters?

Sounds like a good idea but perhaps there are liability issues with going into a clinic to do that? Not sure.

Agreed! Everyone I have talked to has notes HIPPA concerns. I do think one day students will be utilizing telemedicine but probably still a little while away.

I am currently a second year PA student and I have also been pulled from clinical rotations. I was supposed to graduate in May but I’m not so sure that will happen now because of Coronavirus. I saw a petition and wanted to share it because I think it is important we get the word out that PA students must graduate on time!

I don’t think anyone wants to stop the flow of students through programs for lots and lots of reasons. The questions being grappled with have to do with how to continue the training so that new grads have the skills and experiences they’ll need. Lots of innovation going on, I suspect in faculties and regulatory bodies everywhere.
