Teaching Health Center

Camarena Health is affiliated with the A.T. Still University’s Physician Assistant (PA) Program as a community health center campus for clinical education. In August of 2016, five 2nd-year PA students were placed in our health centers for their clinical learning year.

The PA Clinical Residency Program provides one year of hands-on, intense clinical learning modules rotating every six weeks. The students in this program must complete and excel in the following clinical rotation areas:

  • Internal Medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • Behavioral Health
  • Family Medicine
  • General Surgery
  • Emergency Room
  • Women’s Health
  • Elective in Specialty Area

The clinical residency program provides the PA students with a diverse experience, enabling each student to become better prepared for their future work as a provider in a community healthcare setting.
