PA students learn from community pediatric volunteers

PA students in Kearney with volunteer pediatric patients from the community.

Our ten, third-semester PA students in Kearney reached the conclusion of their pediatric skills workshop last week. Volunteer pediatric patients came from the community to serve as patient models so that the students could exercise their noninvasive, clinical diagnostic skills. The learning activity was engaging, fun, and positive, as PA students rehearsed their exam of ENT, heart, lung, abdomen, and neurologic systems. They also learned to establish rapport, win trust, and express compassionate care with their patients. The PA students ended the event by helping the pediatric patients try on the clinical garb shown in the photo.
