Physician Assistant Student Elective Rotation
This four week elective rotation in clinical oncology is designed to acquaint the motivated, senior-level PA student with state-of-the-art multidisciplinary cancer care at a world-renowned comprehensive cancer center.
Students will be mentored by clinical PAs and/or nurse practitioners who teach on a volunteer basis. Students will experience firsthand the care given to patients by expert oncology multidisciplinary teams.
Students may choose from a variety of multidisciplinary rotations. Rotation involves participation in lectures, grand rounds and multidisciplinary conferences.
It is highly recommended that PA students plan their elective rotation during the later period of their clinical training. At a minimum, students must have 16 weeks of clinical rotations, including 4 weeks in medicine and 4 weeks in surgery rotations before participating in an elective at MD Anderson.
Applications are accepted quarterly and reviewed by a selection committee. Students are accepted based on the competitiveness of their application and preceptor availability. For specific details regarding the application process, please review the following documents:
