12 Va. Admin. Code § 5-31-1940 - Physician course director responsibility to students

Current through Register Vol.. 38, No. 17, April 11, 2022

A. PCD/student relationship. The PCD shall assure that students are made aware of the PCD's responsibilities for the course, and of how to contact and if possible meet the PCD during the first lessons of any certification course.
B. Hospital-based experiences and field internships. The PCD shall provide clinical oversight and operational authority for the field practice of students enrolled in an approved EMS certification training program while the students are participating in clinical and field internship training. During these training programs the enrolled students may perform the clinical skills and functions of EMS personnel who are certified at the level of the course of instruction when:
1. The students are caring for patients in the affiliated hospitals or other healthcare-related facilities approved by the PCD, provided that the related didactic subject matter and practical skills laboratory have been completed and the students are under the direct supervision of a preceptor who is a physician, physician's assistant, nurse practitioner, registered nurse or an EMS provider certified at or above the level of the training program. All preceptors must be approved by the affiliated hospital or facility.
2. The students are caring for patients during a required course field internship program with a licensed EMS agency approved by the PCD, provided that the related didactic subject matter and practical skills laboratory have been completed and the students are under the direct supervision of and accompanied by an EMS provider certified at or above the level of the training program, or under the direct supervision of a licensed physician.

Nothing in this subsection removes the obligation of the supervising hospital, facility or licensed EMS agency for ultimate responsibility for provision of appropriate patient care by students participating in clinical or internship training.
