Physician Associates Fellowship scheme
Physician associates (PAs) are generalist healthcare professionals providing medical care who work semi-autonomously.
- The aim of this scheme is offering PAs the opportunity to chance to have varied clinical exposure to enhance their professional maturity. This is facilitated through specialist placement with a secondary organisation alongside work in the primary care setting.
General structure (37.5 hr post):
- 2.5 days in general practice seeing patients
- 2 days in a specialist host organisation that matches the Fellows area of interest (acute, GPPO, Mental health, IC24)
- 0.5 days for education that compliments the PA Fellows interests.
Funding is available to support the general practice and the secondary host.
