Bethel PA students

Discover how Bethel physician assistant students can support your practice

The clinical year provides invaluable experiences to students in our physician assistant program, and it wouldn’t be possible without the help of willing healthcare providers. When you partner with Bethel as a preceptor, it's a great service to our students—but it also benefits you. 

Increased clinic efficiency

Bethel PA students are well equipped to perform clinical skills such as suturing, casting, splinting, I&D, and more. They can also assist with documentation and meet with patients ahead of being seen by the provider. 

Opportunity to give back

As a healthcare provider, you once found yourself in similar shoes. Clinical experience is an essential part of PA education, and you’ll have the chance to make a difference in the lives of future healthcare providers. 

Clinical faculty status

Preceptors who allow students on site for three months out of the year or more will be given adjunct clinical faculty status at Bethel University.

Strategic recruitment

You'll have the opportunity to connect with top students—and great candidates for PA positions within your organization.
