Description


Within the health care curriculum, clinical teaching sites give medical, nurse practitioner, and physician assistant students hands-on opportunities with patients in real-world settings. Yet, finding or maintaining clerkship/clinical training sites continues to be a challenge, and this has become a more pressing issue in recent years because of increased competition for sites and a shortage of willing and well-trained preceptors.

This joint report from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM), the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), and the Physician Assistant Education Association (PAEA), summarizes the results of a March 2013 survey sent to the dean or director of every eligible school or program in the four disciplines.

The results of the survey provide valuable insight into the common concerns of each discipline regarding shortages in clerkships/clinical training sites and the strategies used to address those concerns.
