Clinical Experience in Early Didactic (CEED)
The Four CEED Perspectives
- Clinical Mentor and You
With each experience, you will work with a clinical mentor (PA or MD) who will help you continue to develop your knowledge and skills in a clinical setting.
- The Team and You
In the clinical setting, you will work side-by-side with other health care professionals, such as registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, medical assistants and physical therapists. By working as part of a health care team, you will learn about the various roles of the different health care providers and members of the office staff.
- The Patients and You
You will work at clinical sites that may offer the opportunity to follow the same patients over time. You will be encouraged to take part in as many patient encounters as possible.
- The Health Care System and You
You will be encouraged to apply the knowledge learned in the Preparing Future PAs course to the clinical setting. You will observe how the various team members interact with the health care system.
