One-Minute Preceptor

The One-Minute Preceptor teaching method guides the preceptor-student encounter via five microskills.

Incorporating Students into Patient Care/Workflow

This 1-pager for Preceptors serves as a resource for strategies that can be utilized to more effectlely integrate students into clinical practice.

Introducing/Orienting a PA Student to your Practice

Orientation facilitates a quicker transition in allowing the student to become a member of the medical team.

Tailoring Clinical Teaching to an Individual Student

PA students from the same or different programs may come to the clinical setting for training with differences in clinical knowledge and skills based on a number of factors.

Revised CMS Rule Eases Preceptor Burden

An update to the CMS manual now allows the teaching physician to verify in the medical record any student documentation of components of E/M services, rather than redocumenting the work. The term “teaching physician” has not changed in this revision and has always been interpreted as referring to PA and NP preceptors as well. The rule also clearly refers to PA students.

Accreditation and Program Goals

The Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) has granted Accreditation-Continued status to the Bethel University Physician Assistant Program sponsored by Bethel University. Accreditation-Continued is an accreditation status granted when a currently accredited program is in compliance with the ARC-PA Standards.

Accreditation remains in effect until the program closes or withdraws from the accreditation process or until accreditation is withdrawn for failure to comply with the Standards. The approximate date for the next validation review of the program by the ARC-PA will be September 2026. The review date is contingent upon continued compliance with the Accreditation Standards and ARC-PA policy.

Learn more about the PA program's accreditation, program goals, and first time graduate performance on certification exam.
