Physician Associate (PA)

Resources and Offers for Primary Care in North West England

Physician associates support doctors in the diagnosis and management of patients.

As a physician associate, you might work in a GP surgery or be based in a hospital, but wherever you work, you’ll have direct contact with patients.

“I find it very rewarding when I’ve supported a patient with a mental illness and see them come out the other side feeling hopeful and stronger than they were.” Andy King, physician associate at Mosborough Health Centre in Sheffield
