A portion of the PA students' clinical training involves working in physician-supervised practices. To complete this aspect of PA training, Barry University depends on the generosity of active clinicians who assume the role of Clinical Preceptor and open their practices up to our students. By offering to serve as a Clinical Preceptor, you will be providing students the opportunities they need to build upon their knowledge and further develop diagnostic skills and clinical reasoning.

Barry University’s Physician Assistant Program is an intensive twenty-eight month program for students seeking a Master of Clinical Medical Science degree. Our students will come to your practice with a solid foundation, having already completed a year of didactic and practical instruction.

After Barry PA students complete a year of clinical rotations, they move on to a final three-month didactic phase which provides them with an in-depth knowledge of scientific research design and statistics, and the analytical skills necessary to read and interpret the medical literature. The valuable clinical experiences they will gain under your supervision will enable them to successfully complete their education at Barry University.
