A.T. Still Memorial Library Policies
The A.T. Still Memorial Library Policies LibGuide contains all of the library’s official policies. Currently, the LibGuide includes the library’s collection development policy and copyright policy.

CHC Physician Assistant Clinical Resources
With the completion of the white coat ceremony for the inaugural cohort on the ATSU-College for Healthy Communities campus in Santa Maria, California, we have created a new clinical guide to meet the second years’ study needs.
The guide includes resources organized by rotation: internal medicine, pediatrics, emergency medicine, OB/GYN, behavioral health, surgery, and family medicine. Students can find e-books, websites, videos, databases, and organizations useful to their rotation within each rotation tab.
The guide also provides a one-stop location for pertinent mobile apps, general rotation resources, professional and ethical resources, research resources, procedure videos, and PANCE prep exam support.
