The didactic phase is followed by a 12-month clinical phase where the learners will engage in well over 2100 hours of supervised clinical practice experiences (SCPEs). Learners participate in seven core SCPEs Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Pediatrics and Adolescent Care, Women’s Health and Prenatal Care, Behavioral and Mental Health, Emergency Medicine, and two elective SCPEs (all SCPEs are five weeks long).

At the end of each SCPE the learners return to the main campus and participate in a three-day Clinical Seminar. Clinical Seminar activities include an end of SCPE examination, OSCE, focused NCCPA board review with case discussions, a NCCPA-type practice exam, professional workshops and round table discussions on topics regarding PA practice, population and community health issues.
