Physician Associates

We are delighted as a training Practice to announce that we are one of the first practices in the region to take on trainees from the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University on the Physician Associates course.

Physician Associates are a new type of Medical Practitioner with post graduate clinical training and who work with Doctors and Nurses in the diagnosis and management of patients.

They are trained to perform a number of roles including:

  • Taking medical histories

They are always under the direct supervision of a Doctor.
