PA 611a - Hospice/Palliative Care or Selective SCPE

Supervised clinical practice experiences (SCPEs) provide students with the opportunity to gain experience and develop competency in interacting with, evaluating, treating and managing patients seeking medical care for a wide variety of conditions, over a wide variety of situations (e.g., preventative care and health maintenance, acute and chronic illness, inpatient and pre- and post-hospital care), and within a wide variety of environments. For this particular clinical rotation, students will either participate in the Hospice/Palliative Care SCPE - specifically designed as a 4- week clinical rotation providing students with exposure to and training with male and female patients in palliative care and hospice care settings - or in a selective SCPE (a clinical rotation chosen by the Program based on identified student weaknesses and/or student preferences at the discretion of the Director of Clinical Education). In addition to clinical practice experience, the course will also include didactic teaching pertinent to the rotation.
