Abstract


Volunteering at a free clinic may influence career choice amongst health profession students. The purpose of this research is to explore knowledge, skill, attitudes, self-efficacy, interest in future work with the underserved, and interest in primary care amongst physician assistant (PA) students through the analysis of demographic characteristics of PA students at a student-run free clinic in the United States. Data were collected from 56 PA students with a quantitative survey collection in October 2018 after their participation at a student-run free clinic in Intermountain West, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Out of three sub-scales i. e. attitudes, effect, and readiness, students responded most positively to effect of experience of participating in free clinic. Students who spoke Spanish showed higher levels of self-efficacy and readiness for a future career in comparison to non-Spanish speakers.
