As a Physician’s Associate you will provide care for patients including clinical assessments, diagnosis and treatment under the mentorship of a Consultant.

Working as part of the multi-disciplinary team you will be required to undertake physical assessment and history taking of patients including coordinating patients on ambulatory pathways related to their speciality and provide immediate care and initiate treatment as per clinical pathways.
