R2 Site Visit Summary

My two site visits helped me to practice my ability to concisely present patients to clinicians who are otherwise unfamiliar with my patients’ cases, a skill that I know I will continue to develop and execute throughout the course of my career as a PA student and PA. I enjoyed getting to hear my classmates do the same, as listening to patient presentations and extracting the pertinent information is another skill that is of utmost importance. I appreciated how collaborative the dynamic of these site visits were, I engaged in many insightful and constructive conversations about assessments, differential diagnoses, and plans, which are areas where I specifically am looking to strengthen because sometimes I struggle to articulate my thought processes. I learn best when I am able to work with my peers instead of as an individual, so overall, I really enjoyed how my site evaluator facilitated our visits as they were particularly valuable learning experiences to me.
