Postgraduate Education - Advanced Practice - Physician Associates
Physician Associates are healthcare professionals with a generalist medical education, working alongside doctors providing medical care as an integral part of the multi-professional team. Physician Associates are dependent practitioners who can work autonomously, but always under the supervision of a fully trained and experienced doctor. They bring new talent adding to the skill mix within teams, providing a stable, generalist section of the workforce which can help ease the pressures that the NHS currently faces.
