Student profile - Rachel Mail
Physician Associate PGDip, full-time
I thoroughly enjoy my job as a Physician Associate, I am able to undertake a variety of tasks both on the ward and in the outpatient setting.
What have you been doing since you graduated from the Physician Associate programme?
I am working at Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham and since starting my job I have been incorporated into the multidisciplinary team. I work both on the ward and in outpatient clinics. I present at meetings and am involved in consultant lead discussions over patient care.
Working in Cardiology enables me to continue using and developing my clinical skills and knowledge base. My clinical supervisor is very supportive of the Physician Associate role and understands my need for clinical development.
