Physician Assistant Program


About Clinical Rotations

Supervised clinical practice experiences or clinical rotations are of critical importance to a successful learning experience for our students. Students in the program are required to complete 9 five week rotations with clinical preceptors in the following areas:

  • Family Medicine
  • Internal Medicine
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Surgery
  • Pediatrics
  • Psychiatry
  • Women's Health
  • Electives

Under the supervision of clinical preceptors, students will progressively develop the skills and clinical judgment necessary to become a practicing PA.  

Becoming a Partner

We would love for you to partner with us in preparing the next generation of Physician Assistant clinicians. We know that successful student clinical rotations require a collaborative effort from students, preceptors and the program. This is why we have created a preceptor handbook with specific information for preceptors who work with students in the CSU PA Program. Please see the CSU Preceptor Handbook for more details. 

If you are interested in being a clinical preceptor for the CSU PA Program, contact Meredith Strehle, Director of Clinical Education, at or by phone at 843-863-7450. 


“We are looking to foster relationships with individuals in and around Charleston who are committed to CSU, the PA profession, and to being a part of improving access to quality healthcare in our community.”
