Physician Associate Students are Training here.
In the USA there are 100.000 Physician Associates. We are Training them in the U.K to support Doctors and increase access to care. The University of Sheffield is training them to help in South Yorkshire.
Physician Associates will always work under supervision of a senior doctor, they are being trained to recognise a wide range of clinical problems.
Physician Associates will be able to advise on appropriate investigations and treatment. They will be in your Surgery for 2 weeks at the start of their clinical training and 12 weeks at the end.
