Physician Associates

Physician Associates (PAs) are a relatively new type of healthcare professional. They are not doctors but they support doctors and the wider clinical team. PAs have completed an intense two-year postgraduate degree, having trained using the medical model, and are supervised by senior doctors. PAs assess patients, diagnosing conditions, conducting investigations and formulating management plans.
