Student profile - Shane Apperley

Physician Associate PGDip, full-time 

What have you been doing since you graduated from the Physician Associate programme?

Since graduating from the University of Birmingham in 2011 I have been working within the speciality of Trauma and Orthopaedics at Swindon Great Western Hospital. I care for trauma and elective patients, both paediatric and adult. I also run my own clinics, first assist in theatre and am involved in teaching and research.  

How did you find the programme?

The Birmingham Physician Associate program helped me develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to work within the NHS. I also developed some good friendships during my two years and have not one regret!
