MSPA 532 - Clinical Skills II

This is the second of three Clinical Skills courses presented during the didactic year. This series is designed to develop the clinical skills necessary for practice as a physician assistant in primary care. This course will enhance the skills and knowledge 100 learned in the previous course by providing students with more in-depth skills for examining the eyes, lungs, and heart. It will also introduce examination of the abdomen, nervous system, and the spine. The focus of this course is to introduce the procedural skills required in physician assistant practice. Topics will be presented and assessed in multiple formats using Standardized Patients (SPs), Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs), and clinical simulations. Topics included in this course are closely aligned with the Clinical Medicine, Advanced Clinical Anatomy & Physiology, Patient Evaluation and Education and Clinical Pharmacology & Pharmacotherapeutics series.
