Preceptor Assessment of Students​

The CHA/PA program utilizes an improved assessment method for clinical rotations. The process allows preceptors to assess student performance in a developmental approach. The assessment allows students to identify areas of improvement and strengths, guide their future educational goals, and provide a measure of their progress over three clinical years.

Why precept?

Precepting is an integral piece in CHA/PA's education of PA students. Physicians (MD/DO), PAs, CNMs and Nurse Practitioners can precept. Clinical mentoring offers you the opportunity for professional and personal development while mentoring PA students at various stages of their clinical education. Modeling provided by preceptors, in all types of clinical settings, provides students with a tremendous learning experience.

You may elect to precept our first year students who have basic clinical skills, our second year students who have advanced clinical skills, and/or our third year students who can become an integral member of your provider team.

One of the best ways to identify a future PA colleague for your practice is to provide clinical preceptorships in your office!
