Clinical Placements

K-State has developed a variety of clinical placements for students to experience a wide range of clinical training. Five-week clinical rotation training occurs through the following courses: Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Women’s Health, Pediatric Medicine, General Surgery, Behavioral Medicine, Geriatric Medicine, and Orthopedics.

Students will complete one elective clinical training experience. This can occur in traditional clinical settings or focus on other areas such as health care leadership, professional development, research, forensics, disaster medicine, academic medicine and military medicine.

The clinical team is actively seeking out additional partnerships with hospitals, clinics and medical providers in Kansas. PA students are not required to provide or solicit clinical sites or preceptors. The PA program will coordinate clinical site and preceptor placement for required rotations based on the education needs of the student.
