MSPA 533 - Clinical Skills III

This is the third 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 introduce examination skills for pediatric, geriatric, orthopedic and reproductive systems. It will also present more comprehensive examination skills and complex thought processes required in chronic diseases such as diabetes, thyroid abnormalities, and depression. 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.
