What are Physician Associates (PAs)?

physician associate is a healthcare professional who is trained to a medical model, and practices medicine as a part of a healthcare team with collaborating physicians and other providers. In the UK, PAs are nationally certified to practice medicine but are not yet able to prescribe. A certified PA may add "R" at the end of his/her/their postnominal credentials

 

The PA Course at UWE

The UWE PA course is now in its fourth year and has doubled in size. As a relatively new and rigorous programme, it offers an alternative career within a wider multidisciplinary medical team. For more information see https://courses.uwe.ac.uk/B9611/physician-associate-studies or join the open group on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/1335328979856958/.

 

The PA Society at UWE

The UWE PA Society is a forward-thinking academic society that offers people with an interest in medical science access to a range of innovative academic and social events. It is not just for current or aspiring Physician Associates but for anyone with a general interest in healthcare or medicine. We have close ties with both the UWE Physician Associate course and other courses nationally and internationally.
