COVID Update: 2nd Year PA Program Students

March 27, 2020

Dear Physician Assistant 2nd year Students,

Thank you for meeting with us on Wednesday to discuss the COVID-19 situation and the impacts upon your clinical rotations. At that time, we advised you that rotation 6, that had been rescheduled to begin April 6, is now entirely postponed and that all travel and housing arrangements for that rotation should be cancelled.

We can now confirm that a decision has been made to put all clinical rotations on hold until July 6, 2020. These are unprecedented times of uncertainty in our health system and your safety, as well as the safety of our patients and colleagues, is of the utmost importance. We recognize that this is a difficult time for you all. We will continue to review the appropriateness of this decision, as the COVID-19 situation evolves. We will continue to work tirelessly to maintain the quality of your education and enable you to become the best PA possible.

We aim to keep you engaged in meaningful educational activities during this time – we will relay details as they are available.

We appreciate that there will be ongoing questions – and therefore we will hold our next check-in on Wednesday April 1, at 10:30.

Thank you,

Leslie, Britton and Peter
