Throughout the year we have Physician Associate (PA) students from Sheffield universities undertaking placements in General Medicine, General Surgery, A&E, Child Health and Women’s Health.
The students are working towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Physician Associate Studies, which is a two year course. They will complete 1,600 hours of clinical placement during the 2 year course, in hospital, mental health, primary care and general practice.
After successfully completing these courses, the students are able to apply for a Physician Associate post, joining a growing body of Physician Associates in rich and varied employment across the UK.
You can read more about the role of a Physician Associate on the Physician Associate Faculty website (from the Royal College of Physicians).
