Providence Medford Medical Center earns top OHSU clinical site award

Providence Medford Medical Center's Emergency Department has earned the Outstanding Clinical Site Award from Oregon Health & Sciences University for its physician's assistant program. Providence has accepted 46 physician's assistant students since 2005.

Students complete eight five-week rotations, including six required rotations and two electives.

Emergency medicine is one of the required rotations.

The rotations follow a rigorous one-year didactic, or classroom-based, phase.

"Our PA students have told us that Providence Medford is one of their favorite rotations because the clinicians are eager to teach and they truly prepare the students to become better clinicians," OHSU regional coordinator Gina Jones said in a statement.
