Physician Associate Roles

Physician Associates are an emerging role in Primary Care across the Wessex region and are clinical graduates who work to complement GPs and the practice team.  They are trained in the medical model to consult, examine, understand the patient's problems and plan care. They are dependent practitioners  who remain under the supervision of a named GP to add extra capacity and flexibility. 

Physician Associates (PAs) must pass an intensive 2-year post graduate university course to acquire clinical knowledge and skills after completing a 3-year biomedical or healthcare related degree. They train in both the acute sector and primary care to gain a rounded patient centred clinical experience.
