Healthcare providers who provide health services, including psychiatric/psychological counseling, to a PA student or their close family members have the potential to be in a conflict-of-interest situation. Clinical educators are not allowed to complete an assessment of any students for whom they provide or have provided medical care. They are also not allowed to assess students for whom they provide or have provided medical care to close family members. While the student may still rotate in a setting with a preceptor with a conflict of interest, the named preceptor for the rotation and the preceptor who completes the assessment must not have a conflict of interest. Students are required to notify the Director of Clinical Education of any potential conflict of interest situations to determine whether an alternative clinical site or clinical educator is warranted.
