Precepting PA Students: Tips & Perspective from a Clinical Preceptor

When a PA student starts 2nd year PA Clinical Rotations, it often begins with one of the core rotations: Family Medicine, Emergency, Surgery, Internal Medicine, other.

There are some students who begin with an elective rotation – and in McMaster PA Student’s Brooke’s case she started with Radiation Oncology – an intense rotation to begin clinical year with!

Maitry, UHN PA at Princess Margaret Hospital was her preceptor – and reached out to me after Brooke had just completed a complex clinical case presentation to a group of radiation oncologists and fellows at Tumor Boards.

Medical Education, and mentoring PA students is an important part of PA advocacy and building up the profession. Maitry shares how she approaches preceptorship and what she expects from her PA students.
