Registration is now being accepted for a new online review program that

prepares physician assistants for national certification and

recertification exams. The program, called the PA CLER (Certification,

Licensure, Evaluation and Review), was developed by PAs and other clinical

experts on behalf of Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU) to

provide a cutting-edge, self-paced exam preparation course for physician

assistants.

Through the program, enrollees get three months of unlimited access to a

Web site containing a preliminary exam, personalized curriculum, review

exercises and a final practice test. Links to relevant medical and health

care resources on the Web are integrated throughout the review modules.

The PA review course was designed to prepare physician assistants for the

Physician Assistant National Certifying Exam (PANCE) and Recertifying Exam

(PANRE). It was created to offer the convenience of self-paced instruction

with the guidance and support usually available only through classroom-

based review courses. The program includes 18 exam review modules and

features interactive learning and audiovisual presentation through the use

of RealMedia technology.

“”This is a comprehensive review program that helps those preparing for

board exams focus their study efforts and set achievable goals,”” said Roy

Guizado, PA-C, chair of WesternU’s department of physician assistant

education. “”The real advantage that we’re offering is the option to

complete a review program at your own pace and on a schedule that’s

convenient for the user.””

For more information, or to enroll in the program, visit the site’s public

PA CLER is $295 for a three-month period. Additional information can also
