University of Dubuque Preceptors "PA" it forward

  • Clinical preceptors are vital in the educational experience of future PAs.
  • University of Dubuque Physician Assistant Program clinical preceptors are integral to the professional development of our students, sharing their expertise through facilitation of quality hands-on clinical experiences and patient interactions.
  • Precepting is a community and professional service which positively impacts the delivery of optimal healthcare.

All of our students will complete core rotations in the following:

  • Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Women's Health, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, General Surgery, Psychiatry/Behavioral Health, and Rural Medicine, as well as three selective clinical rotations.
  • Student participation in patient care outside of traditional scheduling (call, overnights, and weekends) and clinical outreach in alternative settings is encouraged!
