Physician Associates

#41
At the GP practice I was attached to in job before this one (soon to be previous job, it's farking dreadful) they had employed Paramedics to do all of the home visits (apart from the ones that the GP registrars needed to do).
It worked really well.
No idea of their pay scale.
From what they said, they very much preferred general practice to scraping people off the road.
And I also should have said, that the patients' preferred seeing the paramedics.
Just saying..

But (if suitably qual'd) can prescribe Viagra and pox abx so worth every taxpayers penny spent on their development before they bugger off to earn their fortune in GP/Bransonland

Did you have any luck with army reserve? I have just qualified as a Physician Associate
Both units i have spoken to are happy for me do the CMT1 course.

hows your time applying for such roles been? Ive started my PA MSc in Wales, been in reserves for about a year and a half through undergrad (low commitment due to course intensity) and Im looking to do something similar to you.
Im not in EM (work in acute med) but I had multiple job offers 3 months before qualifying, the demand for Physician Associates is really high, especially with multiple royal colleges getting on board with the role.
What role are you doing in reserves?

ahh, this was the case with my medical schools last graduating cohort, good to hear its not an exemption, although Welsh NHS the way it is, and staff shortages being what they are, not surprising. Started as Infantry, as I was told that a medical regt wouldnt tough me unless I had a civvy paramedic or EMT qual. so im looking to transfer now. How was your time applying medic roles? any issues regarding PA qual? as in where it stands in relation to Dr and RN?

I was offered CMT and MSO roles at every med unit, but ultimately ended up doing a different role entirely
