Physician Assistant Students

Improve your learning with clinical experience.

Clinical experiences, or “clinicals,” are college-level, school-sponsored learning experiences for PA students offered in our patient care areas at Parkview Physicians Group office locations. Each experience must be part of an approved school program affiliated with Parkview. Student experiences are led by college faculty and selected Parkview professionals.

A clinical experience can be:

  • A semester or quarter for college students in PA programs.
  • Longer options may be considered depending on school requirements.


  • Must be part of an approved PA program affiliated with Parkview.
  • Clinical experiences must have an affiliation agreement in place between the school and Parkview.
  • “Independent” clinicals not connected to a school program will not be allowed.
  • Must be coordinated in partnership with school faculty.
  • Must follow established learning goals and objectives.
  • Must be unpaid in exchange for greater learning benefit to the student. Most clinicals are awarded course credits at completion.
  • Completed student required reading and forms.
  • Approval by Student Services Department.
  • Must contact the Medical Staff Services office at the designated Parkview facility for clearance to follow physicians in the hospital.
