3 Responsibilities and Expectations It is expected that students will act professional at all times. Students should carefully review and refer to the Policy Manual for details about such things as absence, dress code, behavior, etc. Course Description: PHAS 7403 Capstone Clinical Track III This is an advanced clinical course designed to augment and update the existing clinical skills and knowledge of the primary care Physician Assistant. Upon completing this course, students will be able to understand and clinically apply practice base and system base practice competencies in the area of medical concentration track the student has chosen. Evaluation of best practice case studies and discussions highlight this area of concentration. Prerequisite: Completion of both Didactic and Clinical Year courses. Competencies I. Medical Knowledge Medical knowledge includes the synthesis of pathophysiology, patient presentation, differential diagnosis, patient management, surgical principles, health promotion, and disease prevention. Physician assistants must demonstrate core knowledge about established and evolving biomedical and clinical sciences and the application of this knowledge to patient care in their area of practice. In addition, physician assistants are expected to demonstrate an investigative and analytic thinking approach to clinical situations. Physician assistants are expected to understand, evaluate, and apply the following to clinical scenarios: 1. evidence-based medicine 2. scientific principles related to patient care 3. etiologies, risk factors, underlying pathologic process, and epidemiology for medical conditions

4 4. signs and symptoms of medical and surgical conditions 5. appropriate diagnostic studies 6. management of general medical and surgical conditions to include pharmacologic and other treatment modalities 7. interventions for prevention of disease and health promotion/maintenance 8. screening methods to detect conditions in an asymptomatic individual 9. history and physical findings and diagnostic studies to formulate differential diagnoses II. Interpersonal & Communication Skills Interpersonal and communication skills encompass the verbal, nonverbal, written, and electronic exchange of information. Physician assistants must demonstrate interpersonal and communication skills that result in effective information exchange with patients, patients families, physicians, professional associates, and other individuals within the health care system. Physician assistants are expected to: 2. use effective communication skills to elicit and provide information 4. work effectively with physicians and other health care professionals as a member or leader of a health care team or other professional group 6. accurately and adequately document information regarding care for medical, legal, quality, and financial purposes III.

Professionalism Professionalism is the expression of positive values and ideals as care is delivered. Foremost, it involves prioritizing the interests of those being served above one s own. Physician assistants must acknowledge their professional and personal limitations.

Physician assistants are expected to: 2. locate, appraise, and integrate evidence from scientific studies related to their patients health VI.

Evaluation & Assessment Preceptor Evaluation (30%) Your preceptor(s) will assess your clinical abilities as they pertain to your performance while on off campus learning opportunities. The Capstone Evaluation Form will be used to assign 30% of your grade for each capstone rotation. Assignments (30%) Course goals are achieved in each of the Capstone Rotations through a variety of experiences such as case studies, self-evaluations, reflections, write up notes, presentations, and the continued refining of education and skills. Students

11 receive ongoing feedback on assignments and learning goals. OSCE Evaluation (30%) The Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is a multipurpose evaluative tool that can be utilized to assess students in a (mock) clinical setting. It assesses competency, based on objective testing through direct observation. It is precise, objective, and reproducible allowing uniform testing of students for a wide range of clinical skills. The interaction with the patient includes taking a history, performing physical examination, ordering laboratory testing, interpreting findings, reaching a diagnosis, and prescribing treatment according to the medical model. Educational Portfolio (10%) An educational (or professional) portfolio is a collection of evidence that demonstrates the progressive acquisition of knowledge, skills, and attitudes. It also gives a picture of your individual experience in a learning situation. Portfolios were first developed in the 1940 s as an alternative to testing. They have become the primary means for evaluation of professional competence in fields like architecture, writing, most fine arts, and education. This is because they allow flexibility for an individual to give a representative view of their accomplishments and competence. Medicine, being both a science and an art, is very suitable for the use of portfolios. Portfolios also promote reflective thinking and encourage you to be self-directed in determining the direction of your future learning. Development of life-long learning skills is critical to your future success as a physician assistant. But, this must be coupled with an accurate self-assessment to direct your future education. In order to encourage these skills, you will compile an educational portfolio during your three capstone rotations. This portfolio is an opportunity for you to demonstrate both your growth in the acquisition of the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required in the field of medicine and your level of competency in the six core competencies mentioned in this syllabus. In summary, the educational portfolio is designed to promote the following goals: 1. Increase self-directed learning among students and promote habits that foster life-long learning.

12 2. Encourage reflection on your own level of competence, your educational needs, and the medical and psychosocial needs of your patients. 3. Allow the student more flexibility and creativity to demonstrate the achievement of knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary in medicine.

SCHOLASTIC INTEGRITY: As members of a community dedicated to Honesty, Integrity and Respect, students are reminded that those who engage in scholastic dishonesty are subject to disciplinary penalties, including the possibility of failure in the course and expulsion from the University.
