Physician associate UK?
So currently i am going to be heading to the second year of my biomedical degree course in the Uk in september this year, and I have been thinking about what i want to do in the future as it is rather very close. I was looking into PA but i'm not sure whether it is a career that i should definetly go for. I have heard some negatives and positives on both side. The negative that really puts me off is the fact that i am not able to work outside of the UK if i wanted to, it is fairly new so not too many jobs at the moment (not sure if this is true), not being able to progress in pay.
Is anyone a PA in the uk?? The jobs seems exciting though.

I googled it and it looked interesting. Unless you qualify as a Doctor you cant work abroad in the medical field.

There is no such thing as a Physician's (Doctor's) Associate in the UK. Basic injections and blood tests are done by Health Care Assistants - they are told what to do by the Practice Nurse or GP.
