PA program holds pediatrics workshopPosted: June 26, 2009
A pediatrics workshop was held for 69 PA students June 25 on ATSU’s Arizona Campus. Students practiced physical exams on nearly 25 children of faculty and students. ASHS’ PA program holds the workshop to prepare the students for examining children when they begin their clinical rotations.
“We often practice these exams on adults (generally students practice on each other), but it’s a whole different ballgame when you are examining a child,” says Associate Program Director Laura Witte, Ph.D., PA-C.
