Preceptors Praise BW PA Students

“(This BW student) was a dream for any preceptor, especially so early in her rotations.  Her knowledge base is impressive and readily applied to the clinical setting.  She is always attentive, always willing to try new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, and always ready to assist in more complex procedures.  Please send me more students as prepared and eager as her!”   

Andrea Boyd, PA-C, Southwest General Health System, Emergency Department


“(This student) has a strong knowledge of disease processes and continued to read relevant material regarding her patients throughout the rotation. Treatment plans are often the most difficult area for students, however, she put in the time and effort to strengthen her assessments and plans and succeeded brilliantly. She was a strong asset to our team and always brought a positive attitude and a desire to get involved and learn.  She is a quick learner and, if she continues on her current path, she will undoubtedly achieve great things. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her!”   Qutaibah Khatib, MD, Summa Health System, Critical Care Unit
