Because of the intense nature of PA education, the PA faculty believes no student is capable of acquiring the level of knowledge needed to perform adequately as a Physician Assistant student while engaged in outside employment. It is strongly advised that students refrain from working while in the program.
At no time is a student to be substituted for a faculty member or clinician. Students are not to be employed while on their clinical learning rotations by preceptors or health care facilities. Students may not serve or perform as staff members of the program.
