Roles and responsibilities
A Physician Associate supports doctors in the diagnosis and direct care of patients. The role might be within a GP surgery or be based in a hospital and involves recording the medical history of patients and performing physical examinations to help diagnose illness.
You will see patients with long-term chronic conditions to try and manage and resolve conditions. You will analyse test results and develop management plans.
