These courses will review and reinforce the Guidelines for Ethical Conduct for the Physician Assistant Profession, PA governance and guidelines for licensure/credentialing, electronic medical records, billing and coding, and prescribing regulations and risk management, as well as provide a self-study in medical Spanish to improve communication skills with the growing Spanish-speaking populations in the U.S. Students will also be introduced to the U.S. healthcare system, health policy, and public health.
