PHAS 658 Senior Seminar I and Research

A seminar format is utilized to provide the senior PA students with a concentrated study of identified areas of professional need and/or selected topics of clinical interest. The topics presented will change depending on the identified areas of need and the students' self-assessment fund of knowledge and clinical preparation/ experiences. When taken as part of the clinical rotation year, this first senior seminar is completed at the end of the first three core rotations. During the first three core rotations, the student will select a capstone project and produce a final draft version with mentorship provided by his or her faculty adviser. Mentoring will be provided both in person and via distance-learning technology. This course may be repeated up to eight semester hours as long as the topic is different.
