Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

Physician Associates are a new and rapidly growing group of graduate professionals in the UK. Whilst not doctors, they work to the medical model, with the attitudes, skills and knowledge base to deliver holistic care and treatment within the general medical and/or general practice team under defined levels of supervision. With ever increasing demands on our National Health Service, the role of the PA is designed to supplement the medical workforce, ultimately improving patient access.

Upon successful completion of the University of Aberdeen assessments, students are eligible to present for the national exam graduates. Upon passing the National Exam, candidates are eligible to be entered on the voluntary national register (PA MVR) and to practice as a PA in the UK. Following the two year course and after qualification, PAs can expect starting salaries of Agenda for Change Band 6. Thereafter career progression will be dependent upon competency, attributes and opportunities to progress to higher pay scales.
